I would suggest to consider a subtype of http://schema.org/PropertyValue for representing skills. This will give a lot of flexibility while preserving data granularity from the source.

Job titles can be a poor indication of what someone is doing when people are doing multiple roles at once.  For people with portfolio careers, it makes more sense to speak of "projects" rather than job titles, with the project involving one or more roles.
