Personal skills can be described as personality and behavioral traits that determine how people act in a workplace context, including how they manage themselves, perform their work and interact with coworkers and management. Personal skills may also include creative, leadership, linguistic and analytical skills. Job applicants should be precise and descriptive when it comes to their personal skills. For example, instead of simply describing oneself as "careful," job applicants can describe themselves as being "precise" or "accurate." Job applicants who are applying to a job based on a written job ad should look for the desired personal skills listed in that job application and determine whether their own skills match.
