Through a comparison between entry-level candidates and upper-Level candidates (Directors & up), we found that entry-level candidates have listed Customer Experience (4.69% vs. upper-level at 4.35%) and Data Entry (12.03% vs. upper-level 8.61%) as their most critical skills. Upper-level candidates have acquired and applied Data Analysis (11.76% vs. entry-level at 8.61%) and Analytical Skills (13.97% vs. entry-level at 10.11%) in their careers.
