SECTION 1



SKILL




A skill is the ability to carry out a task with determined results often
within a given amount of time, energy, or both. Skills can often be divided
into domain-general and domain-specific skills. For example, in the domain
of work, some general skills would include time management, teamwork and
leadership, self-motivation and others, whereas domain-specific skills would
be used only for a certain job. Skill usually requires certain environmental
stimuli and situations to assess the level of skill being shown and used.

WHAT
ARE
SKILLS




Skills are simply the things you learn that
enable you to perform certain tasks.

Work skills -- also called job skills -- are the competencies you
need to perform tasks the job requires. An architect, for example,
needs many job skills to succeed, like the ability to "design
construction projects", "analyze spatial data", "make presentations"
and "read blueprints".

By knowing the "language" of skills, you can communicate them to others
by understanding, describing, and discussing them.



This happens when you:


•Write a resume,

Read about a job opening

Go for a job interview

Talk with your supervisor

Ask for a raise

Seek a promotion

Change your career

Learn new skills

Phrases like "read blueprints" are a part of your skills vocabulary.

To succeed in this high-performance, global economy, everyone needs
to understand and be good at communicating about skills – students,
employers, employees, job seekers, educators, and human resource
managers.

WHAT ARE
JOB
SKILLS?




Job skills are personal abilities and talents that help employees
carry out work-related tasks. Many job-related skills are somewhat
broad, including good communication, word processing, and problem
solving. Depending on the sort of work at issue, though, skills
can be very nuanced. Construction workers need a unique set of
abilities different from lawyers, doctors, or teachers, for instance.
Many job announcements set out the skills required for the work, and
job seekers also typically list their relevant qualifications in their
application materials.



Basic Job Skills

Some of the most important job skills come second nature to employees.
The ability to listen well, to take and apply instructions, and to
maintain focus for long periods of time are critical to success in
almost any workplace. Basic phone courtesy and computer and e-mail
skills also fall in this category.

Most of the time, these sorts of skills are assumed: that is, employers
expect employees to have them, even if they do not ever say so directly.
Job advertisements and openings typically presume a basic level of
proficiency when it comes to the basic skills needed to carry out the job.
Employees can learn a great many things once they have gotten started, but
they usually need to have at least some foundation from which to begin.
