It's easy to do well in data and analytics. It's one of the few job markets that favors employees more than employers. It comes with good pay, interesting work, and an abundance of remote work opportunities.
It also offers a wide range of industries to work in. Here is just a sample of the work people in data have accomplished:
Optimizing the messaging used in advertising
Predicting box office revenue for new movies
Identifying police officers at risk of using excessive force
Predicting hospital patients at risk of sepsis – a life threatening condition
All of these outcomes wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the armies of data engineers, data analysts, data scientists, and many others who build programs to track, transform, and analyze the world’s data.
Whether you love programming, analysis, or storytelling, there's a place for you in data analytics.
