Know Your Transferable Skills

Speaker:  Ankit Shah

Monday, April 22 at 9:30 a.m.

Ankit Shah will lead a discussion about the importance of knowing your transferable skills while in career transition. Whether you are thinking of changing employers, industries, or job function you will need to articulate your transferable skills in a networking meeting or interview. You control your personal brand, and transferable skills coupled with your unique accomplishments are an important part of your brand. Transferable skills are sometimes referred to as soft skills.  Did you know that hiring managers typically make their final decision based on soft skills, personality and what you uniquely bring to the table? It’s called FIT!
Ankit has more than seven years of experience in the career management field within higher education and K-12 settings. He has advised students and alumni at Methodist University, Denison University, Columbus State Community College, and The Ohio State University. He had the privilege of assisting underserved as well as underrepresented populations in his entire professional journey, specifically in the lens of P-20. Now, due to his diverse educational and professional journey, he is excited to work with alumni to assist with their variety of careers in the Office of Alumni Career Management.

Ankit holds a BS in Early Childhood Education from the University of Toledo and an MEd in Higher Education Administration with specialization in Student Affairs from North Carolina State University.
