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