You only have to work in a couple of different white-collar jobs to see how interchangeable white-collar skill sets are.

 

To be successful in a white-collar job, you have to be able to talk to people, and you have to be able to solve problems by yourself and in groups.

 

You have to be able to read and hear things and integrate them into your thinking, and you must be able to follow a project plan or build your own project plan and follow it.

 

White-collar jobs fall across a spectrum regarding the importance of subject-matter expertise to success in the job.
