Whether or not you can do a job—and whether or not you can land that job—often depends on your technical skills. Technical skills are a subset of hard skills, which are the knowledge or abilities needed to perform specific tasks.
Technical skills can include using a certain computer program, video production equipment, or financial modeling techniques. And guess what? Even if your job doesn’t involve programming or even sitting at a computer, chances are you’ve got ’em. Every industry has technical skills.
