Skills: The Common Denominator

Asha Aravindakshan (@dcasha) is the first person friends call when they want to make a career move. Early in her career, she learned the importance of identifying and articulating her own transferable skills to land jobs she loves. Asha also developed key skills in relationship building and business networking to overcome the loneliness that many job seekers experience. Among her volunteer and advisory positions, she served on the alumni boards of both of her alma maters. This vantage, along with her own experiences, led Asha to write her debut book, Skills: The Common Denominator, to help more people find more fulfillment in their professional lives.

During her executive career, she streamlined business operations to maximize accountability, growth and strategic alignment of diverse organizations. Asha speaks regularly on the future of work and digital transformation. She holds a B.B.A. at The George Washington University and M.B.A. at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
