Technical or Job Specific Skills:  These refer to the specialized skills one requires for a particular job and can’t be applied in any other context.

Transferable or Functional Skills: These refer to the general skills involving people, information and objects that can be used in any situation or context like planning, coordinating, organizing, analyzing and problem solving.

Self-Management Skills: This type of skill is a factor of the personality of the individual. For instance the degree to which a person is reliable, resourceful, proactive or approachable is a function of his overall temperament and his personality traits.
