‘Transferable skills’ refers to a set of capabilities and interests that can, in large part, help us from job to job, or even life task to life task. We have many of these skills without realizing it. For instance, your ability to listen and respond briefly to questions on the phone could potentially be a golden skill in a customer support environment. Furthermore, if you’ve managed a family, odds are you could manage a small team. 

Organization and timekeeping are also essential skills that factor into many other daily efforts, and we’ve all had to plan those at some point or other. Turning our caring capabilities into a possible career path can be an essential consideration to think of, then, because once we’ve been a caregiver, or have fulfilled that role, then it’s not unwise for us to take that experience and invest it elsewhere.

To start with though, it’s important to think about what kind of career path would be suitable for us. In this post, we’ll discuss how to think about this process and what kind of roles you may wish to go for. Without further ado, let’s begin:

Consider Who You’d Like To Help

Of course, your caring efforts can only really help in a few certain directions at one time. It’s important to consider who and what you’d like to invest your efforts in. For instance, you may find that becoming qualified for older adult fitness certifications can help you help with senior training, and may even serve as a prerequisite for a physiotherapist’s course. Or, perhaps you’d prefer to help children, or veterans. What matters is having a direct focus on your contribution, and that often means deciding what field we’d like to contribute in.

A Sustainable, Enjoyable Career Path

It’s good to enjoy a sustainable and rewarding career path, and to figure out where that can be applied. Perhaps, for example, you’d prefer working in care environments where you help the elderly get the best out of their social life. You could work for a charity that provides access to puppy dogs on weekday afternoons, so they have fun and some time with the animals. It might be that your caring skills has helped you become a perfect skills tutor at a primary school. There are many applications caregiving can fit - make sure to approach this knowing you can do it.

The Maximum Good You Can Achieve

It’s important to think about the maximum amount of good we can do, but remember, caring for one person in a profound sense is just as good as caring for many in a suitable manner. For instance, it might be that you’re happy to become the daily caregiver, companion and aid for someone who has become newly disabled, allowing them to unlock their quality of life via your assistance. That in itself can provide maximum good, and help your efforts be as effective as possible, gaining the most worthwhile results in the long run.

With this advice, you’re sure to turn your caring capabilities into a possible career.
