What are your skills?
Working out your skills is the first step to deciding what career is best for you. Whether your speciality lies in physical tasks or working with computers, it is valuable to different types of jobs, and there are different ways to work out what they are.
Your skills will generally fall into one of three areas:
- Employability skills - a list of seven skills employers have said are important in the workplace
- Transferable skills - skills that aren't specific to a certain job, but can be applied to a number of different roles
- Specialist skills - skills that are specific to a job, for example cooking if you want to become chef
