Of course there is a difference but they not be so obvious to most people. Another way of saying abilities is Aptitudes. So some jobs require certain aptitudes at a particular level in order to do the job but these are not skills. For example, some jobs may require above average or superior aptitude with regard to eye-hand or eye-foot coordination. This is not a skill in vocational or job sense but vocational experts consider that an aptitude. Similarly, some jobs may require above average or superior ability with regard to finger dexterity (your ability to manipulate small objects quickly and with precision). There are also things like your general learning ability. If you have trouble learning information or how to perform tasks this is going to limit you many times to unskilled jobs.
