Business: Recruiters/Employers To Employees Network

ā€œI’ve been told by recruiters that teaching doesn’t have transferable skills to other industries.ā€

š—”š—§š—§š—˜š—”š—§š—œš—¢š—” employers, recruiters, hiring managers & whoever else needs to hear this:

Classroom Management šŸ‘‰ People Management
Instructional Design šŸ‘‰ Training & Development
Lesson Planning šŸ‘‰ Project Management

More transferable skills:
ā€¢ Active listening
ā€¢ Critical thinking
ā€¢ Complex problem solving
ā€¢ Time management
ā€¢ Negotiation
ā€¢ Budget management
ā€¢ Purchasing & inventory
ā€¢ Expert communication
ā€¢ Coordinating
ā€¢ Managing others
ā€¢ Public speaking
ā€¢ Systems analysis

So, when someone says they are/were a teacher, what they ACTUALLY mean is:

I am a leader in training and development, performance improvement, and project management. As an effective organizational influencer, I have an innate ability to build, motivate, train and develop high-performance teams.

OR

I am an effective communicator who is exceptionally skilled at explaining complex principles and concepts in an easily understandable way. Iā€™m also a creative problem solver who effectively develops working relationships across teams and is able to quickly adapt to shifting priorities in order to achieve objectives.

A little louder this time, TEACHERS HAVE TRANSFERABLE SKILLS.
