Knowing what skills you already have and which ones you are developing can help you determine what types of careers might be best for you.
Assessing your skills can also help you realize what skills you still want or need to gain.
Your skill set will change continually as you gain experience, practice, and training so be sure to re-assess as necessary.
Skills can be grouped into two main categories:
Job Content Skills: These are related to specific jobs or careers. Some examples are: computer skills, technical skills, and subject matter expertise.
Transferable Skills: These are more general skills which may be useful in many work situations. Examples include: communication skills, problem-solving, conflict resolution, teamwork, critical thinking, leadership, organization and time management.
