How is it possible to get something similar to this:

Languages:
   Language 1           Native speaker
   Language 2           Fluent speaker
Skills:
   Working knowledge    Skill1, Skill2, Skill3
   Basic knowledge      Skill4, Skill5, Skill6

I tried using \indent but it doesn't always work as intended. Is there something similar to tab stops in Word?

tabulars can easily do that. The indentation can be adjusted by fixing the value @{\hspace{2em} and each column width can be controlled by adjusting the values p{4cm} and p{5cm} for first and second columns, respectively.

enter image description here

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\setlength{\parindent}{0in}
\begin{document}

\textbf{Languages:}\par\smallskip
\begin{tabular}{@{\hspace{2em}}p{4cm}p{5cm}}
Language 1 & Native speaker \\
Language 2 & Fluent speaker
\end{tabular}

\bigskip
\textbf{Skills:}\par\smallskip
\begin{tabular}{@{\hspace{2em}}p{4cm}p{5cm}}
Working knowledge & Skill1, Skill2, Skill3 \\
Basic knowledge   & Skill4, Skill5, Skill6
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

You can use description list and the style nextline from enumitem package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem,array}
\begin{document}
  \begin{description}[style=nextline]
    \item[Language]
       \begin{tabular}{@{}>{\raggedright}p{0.3\linewidth}
                          >{\raggedright\arraybackslash}p{\dimexpr0.8\linewidth-2\tabcolsep\relax}}
         Language 1 & Fluent \\
         Language 2 & Read
       \end{tabular}
    \item[Skills]
       \begin{tabular}{@{}>{\raggedright}p{0.3\linewidth}
                          >{\raggedright\arraybackslash}p{\dimexpr0.8\linewidth-2\tabcolsep\relax}}
         Working knowledge & Skill 1, skill 2 skill 3 \\
         Basic knowledge & Skill 1, skill 2 skill 3
       \end{tabular}
  \end{description}
\end{document}
