Is the ability to think critically and solve problems more valuable to a potential employer than their education or work experience?

Answered by Alisha, Hiring Expert at Archer Daniels Midland, on September 12, 2017

Critical thinking and problem solving are valuable skill sets to have but they are not excluded from your education and work experience. Think about times while getting your education that you had to work in teams and on projects. How did you deal with diversity and conflicts that arose? These are all great examples of problem solving and critical thinking and can also be beneficial in interview questions as well.
