There are two main types of skills: technical/specialized (e.g. computer skills), and transferable/personal (also sometimes called soft skills, e.g. communication skills). Many personal and transferable skills consistently rate as the most important in the eyes of employers, so make sure you spend adequate time identifying yours. It is worth the time reviewing the Employability Skills 2000+ to see what skills and personal attributes are most valued by employers.
Self assessment is not an exact science; the exercises contained in many of these sites are introductory. Put more emphasis on what you learn about yourself rather than any specific occupations that may be suggested. In order to get the most out of the exercises contained in these sites, use your findings as a starting point for discussions with friends, family or a professional career counsellor, not as a replacement.
