Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Biochemistry field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Biochemistry majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Biochemistry majors need more than the average amount of Science, Programming, Technology Design, Equipment Selection, Quality Control Analysis, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Operation Monitoring, Operation and Control, Learning Strategies, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Writing, Active Learning, Complex Problem Solving, Instructing, Troubleshooting, Critical Thinking, Reading Comprehension, Judgment and Decision Making, Management of Material Resources, Repairing, Speaking, Equipment Maintenance, Monitoring, Active Listening, Time Management, Management of Personnel Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Persuasion, Coordination, Social Perceptiveness, Negotiation, Service Orientation, and Installation.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Biochemistry majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Science is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Writing, Critical Thinking, Speaking, Active Listening, Active Learning, Complex Problem Solving, Science, Judgment and Decision Making, Mathematics, Monitoring, Systems Analysis, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Instructing, Time Management, Social Perceptiveness, Coordination, Persuasion, Operations Analysis, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Operation Monitoring, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Management of Material Resources, Technology Design, Programming, Operation and Control, Management of Financial Resources, Troubleshooting, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
