One skill all employers are looking for


My friend Ted became legend at Robinson-Humphrey for handing a young colleague a stack of financials and saying: “Here. You’re an analyst. Analyze.” The story was told in training classes for years.

Whenever I counsel soon-to-be-graduates embarking on careers, I remind them why employers hire them. It’s not for their looks, their charm or their degrees. It’s for their minds.

Employers seek people with critical thinking skills, who can gather information diligently, evaluate it objectively and make rational, independent judgments. That adds value to organizations.

Regardless of your title or tenure, think like an analyst. Analyze.
