As a job seeker, consider whether you have any of these skills or can demonstrate experience in these areas. And remember, many skills transfer into other areas. For example, customer service skills can be important whether you're applying for a customer service rep position or an administrative assistant job. Always read the employer job posting and ensure all your relevant skills are on display when you apply.
