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