21 Most Valuable Career Skills Attract Promotions, Raises
The 21 most valuable career skills advance their practitioners through “know-how that pays off the most at work” in terms of promotions and raises, according to the June 2016 issue of MONEY.
Co-authors Megan Leonhardt, Kerri Anne Renzulli and Cybele Weisser base their identification of the winning skills set upon collaborative research with the compensation data site PayScale.com. The list comes from analyses, carried out through the combined teamwork of MONEY and PayScale.com, of 15,000 job titles for 54 million employees in 350 industries. The analyses determine what skills from a set of 2,300 direct employees of similar age, experience, location and title toward career advancement and pay raise opportunities.
The co-authors explain that “Of course, knowing which skills are in demand is the first step” since “Next, you’ll need to go out and acquire them.”
