An important step in the job-hunting process is to figure out what all of your skills are.

The dictionary definition of a skill is:

"an ability that has been acquired by training*." 

How often have you heard someone say "I've spent four years in college, and still I haven't picked up any skills." Or someone who has just been laid off after working at a job for two decades say "I just know I'll have to go back to college, and get retrained, because I don't have any skills, except maybe at entry level."

* This "training" can be formal, or informal - things you have just learned from other people or from your own experience!
