The 4 Most Critical Job Skills for 2013

No. 1 Critical Thinking
Critical thinking is a type of reasonable, reflective thinking that is aimed at deciding what to believe or what to do.  It is a way of deciding whether a claim is always true, sometimes true, partly true, or false.  Companies will require that candidates are capable of using logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions, conclusions or approaches to problems.

No. 2 Complex Problem Solving
Almost all hiring managers will want to make sure any potential new hire is skilled in identifying complex problems and reviewing related information to develop and evaluate options and implement solutions.

No. 3 Judgment and Decision-Making
Decision making can be regarded as the mental processes resulting in the selection of a course of action among several alternative scenarios. Every decision making process produces a final choice.  The output can be an action or an opinion of choice. 

No. 4 Active Listening
Listening is one of the most important skills you can have. How well you listen has a major impact on your job effectiveness, and on the quality of your relationships with others.  We listen to obtain information.  We listen to understand.  We listen to learn.
