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