Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Chemical Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Chemical Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Operation Monitoring. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Chemical Technology majors need more than the average amount of Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Operation Monitoring, Equipment Selection, Quality Control Analysis, Science, Monitoring, Mathematics, Time Management, Management of Personnel Resources, Judgment and Decision Making, Systems Evaluation, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Complex Problem Solving, Coordination, Reading Comprehension, Systems Analysis, Learning Strategies, Operations Analysis, Active Learning, Instructing, Writing, Speaking, Programming, Social Perceptiveness, Service Orientation, Management of Material Resources, Persuasion, Negotiation, Management of Financial Resources, Technology Design, 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 Chemical Technology 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 Equipment Maintenance is very distinctive for majors, but the Operation Monitoring, Operation and Control, Monitoring, Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Quality Control Analysis, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Speaking, Active Learning, Time Management, Writing, Coordination, Mathematics, Troubleshooting, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Equipment Maintenance, Social Perceptiveness, Science, Systems Analysis, Instructing, Management of Personnel Resources, Repairing, Service Orientation, Equipment Selection, Persuasion, Negotiation, Operations Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Programming, Technology Design, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
