From the 60x30TX Strategic Plan: A “marketable skill” includes interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas, are valued by employers, and are primary or complementary to a major. It is defined as: Those skills valued by employers that can be applied in a variety of work settings, including interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.
Marketable skills are acquired by students through education, including curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities. Marketable skills are often called employability skills in other countries, or transferable skills here in the states. They include both technical and soft skills. The marketable skills goal was designed to help students market themselves to employers.
