The article above published by the Wall Street Journal says it best. Critical thinking is one of those things that fundamentally affect your ability to succeed and deliver value at the workplace, and yet by virtue of a Bachelor’s Degree we think we’re trained in it. But are we really?

The most telling line I saw in the article was this

“Judy Nagengast, CEO of Continental Inc., an Anderson, Ind., staffing firm, says she has come across young graduates who “can memorize and they can regurgitate” but who struggle to turn book learning into problem solving at work.”

Make sure you really do learn what you need to at college, even if it’s not explicit as a subject! Or better, get in touch with one of our tutors to make sure you’re primed to understand how to critically analyse information so you can be an asset to any company you start or join!
