How To Make Sure Your Job Skills Are Transferrable

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or employee, everyone should future-proof their careers.

Here are Four Ways to Future-Proof Your Career.

Make professional and personal development a priority
If you’re an employee, professional development is not your employer’s responsibility; it’s yours. In addition to the performance goals set by your company, you should have at least two goals that relate to expanding your knowledge and experience beyond your comfort zone. And take note, from books and conferences such as the Disruptors Summit to virtual networking and wealth-building programs such as The Black Business School, learning extends beyond the traditional college or corporate education program.

Develop cross-functional skills or business knowledge
For instance, if you work as a lawyer, a cross-functional skill could be teaching, writing thought leadership articles, coaching, or counseling. If you work as a construction worker, you might consider opportunities in designing, plumbing, investing in rehab properties, or teaching DIY home improvement workshops online and offline.

Build and maintain relationships
When it comes to networking, many people make the mistake of waiting until they are desperate for a new job or opportunity to start developing professional relationships outside of their work environment. This is a big mistake, because professional relationships take time to develop. From meetups to professional organizations and Facebook groups, make relationship building a weekly habit.
