Researcher skills in business


In order to do their work, researchers need to develop a number of skills which can be extremely valuable in a professional environment beyond academia. Some examples of research skills include:

  • Analysing lots of information from different sources
  • Finding information off the Internet
  • Critical thinking
  • Networking with peers
  • Report writing


These skills can be applied for looking at competitors and seeing what they do well to producing a written report on how your department could work better.

Researcher profiles can play key roles within business employers when looking for professionals who need to have knowledge on the state of the art of a certain topic and capacity dive deep into it in order to come up with new ideas or better ways of running activities.
