One of our customers asked us the following question –

What is the applicability of using the TS score (Transferable Skills Scale) Transferable Skills Scale as a preemployment information tool?

Here is our response –

We believe that the Transferable Skills Scale is designed to be part of a battery of tools that are used during the preemployment screening process.

According to John J. Liptak, Ed.D. and Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., Tips for Using the Transferable Skills Scale in Career Decision Making and Job Search, the Transferable Skills are an indicator of a person’s skills acquired from one life experience, education and training, leisure-time activities, and work experiences.

Liptak and Shatkin also summarized that –

  • Transferable skills that are not job specific, but are skills that cut horizontally across all industries and vertically across all jobs from entry-level to chief executive officer (Sherer & Eadie, 1987).
  • Skills that can improve with application and practice, enable people to make contributions and add value, and allow people to describe their value to prospective employers (Lawson, 2000).
