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