Skills are abilities and aptitudes, what a person is good at. They can be learnt or developed. Some examples of skills include typing, planning, organizing, communicating, etc. Skills are learned through a variety of methods: school, work, volunteering, sports, hobbies, peers and experience. In a career context, skills are the aptitudes needed to perform certain tasks. Work skills (or job skills) are the competencies you need to perform tasks the job requires.
