Skills Statement According to the skills identification worksheet, I have a grand total of 21 skills, mostly through job and school experience. While some of these skills I gained in the military, I consider military experience as job experience, so I did not mark them as “other experience”. The skills were separated into seven different areas of experience. I had at least one skill in each area. The first area was communication.

I remember my father waking up very early every morning to head to work and support his wife and four children. He would even ride a bike to work 11 miles away when his car broke down. I’ll always remember that. The last skills I checked off in this area were dependability/ reliability and flexibility. I grouped these two together because I feel like they sort of fit together.
