Whether you are searching for a new job, planning your education for a future job, or evaluating candidates for an employer, understanding the skills that a job requires is important. Job skills can come from many sources like education, or any of your on-the-job or off-the-job experiences.

1. Basic
2. Social
3. Complex Problem Solving
4. Technical
