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