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