    Using the advice from my last question i sat down to do my CV, but i got to a section of 'skills' and thinking about it, i honestly dont know what im good at. I dont go out much, i spend most of my time on my computer or studying, which is also on my computer. But nothing else comes to mind. Does anyone have any solutions or any advice about this? Has anyone else been through something like this?

    Is there any computer software you're particularly competent with that you could mention? What did you do for A-level, could those be relevant?

    It also doesn't need to be anything extraordinary, or out of the norm in terms of soft skills; if you're good at organisation, time management etc, those kinds of things are all relevant

    Sounds like you're good with computers, so maybe take courses in coding or like, Microsoft software.

    Less seriously, you can learn the secret skill of cooking one-minute meals in 58 seconds! :P
