OK. Not a real AIBU but I'm shamelessly posting for traffic as its super urgent.

Can somebody please tell me what to give to a potential employer who is asking me what my skype contact details are?

Do I give them my name, username I chose when I set up skype? Please help! I don't want to look like a pillock. I'm quite computer literate but I don't use bloody Skype

Oh and just in case you think I'm being a lazy cow, I've searched google and youtube and am still none the wiser.

I agree. Absolute mystery to me. If anyone knowledgeable wants to come on, I'd be very pleased!

It's your "Skype Name"

Go to Edit Profile, and it will be shown there, it will be the username you chose, although you can also be found on any other public identity, make sure your privacy is set to not auto-block unknown people.

Why do they even want to know your Skype username? That's so odd..

Because they're planning on doing a Skype interview I'd imagine, coconut wine

You can give them the email address you used to register that Skype account too, as when they search for you to add on as a contact they can search by email.

I just gave them my email address in the end. Apparently that was all that was needed! I need that wine more than coconut though furry. I hate, hate, hate interviews.

The interviewer is in Asia so its being conducted over Skype as an initial chat.

Thanks for your help fred. I gave them my email before I saw your post.
