Transferable skills are simply the skills you develop through any activity, that can be applied to the type of work you want to pursue. By thinking of and marketing yourself as a broad set of skills that you can offer many different employers, instead of just a job title, you can open up a lot of new opportunities for yourself.

P.S. My own solution to unemployment was self employment. Family friendly flexibility was my first priority, and I felt that the best way to achieve that was through self employment. Although it's not typical, my own company was profitable within the first year.
E-business can be a very cost effective entrepreneurial option, and SiteBuildIt! is the best resource I've found for learning exactly how to start an e-business. They teach you how to build a profitable website, and give you all of the tools you need. I built my www.inspiri-art-and-craft.com site using SBI, and I have a second site in the planning stages.
