@Lydia Grime I did a little research and found out that the skills needed to get hired as an administrative assistant are; organizational skills, communication, computer proficiency, time management, attention to detail, problem solving, customer service, adaptability, confidentiality, multi-tasking, record keeping, project management, interpersonal skills, research skills, calendar management, event planning, language skills, and customer relationship management software.

When a hiring manager is evaluating your skill set understand that skills are broken into two groups — hard and soft.

Hard skills are measurable abilities, such as proficiency with a specific computer program. Soft skills are less quantifiable and embody a person's ability to interact with others.

While both sets of skills are important, the soft ones are often a determining factor for hiring managers. Why? Because you can teach a person a specific task but you cannot teach them to be a team player, a listener, a hard worker, or a critical thinker.

@Sally Molina Hello Sally, some advice that’s helped me with this is to watch a movie or show that you’re familiar with in the language you’re hoping to learn with subtitles on at first and then eventually omitting the subtitles. This isn’t a full proof teaching method but can help to reinforce what you’ve already learned, hope this helps. 👍🏼

If you feel as though you have no skills and are trying to find a job, it can be a challenging and discouraging situation, but you can still move yourself forward.

Identify your strengths:

Regardless of job-specific skills, everyone has strengths. Think about what you are good at, which, by the way, are strengths, which yes, are skills.

Now create a list of all those things and how those strengths/skills can be applied in a work setting.

You may just be surprised at how many strengths and skills you do have. I would love to hear about what you come up with...
