Raising Demand for Data science
Data science continues to evolve as one of the most promising and in-demand career paths for skilled professionals. Glassdoor ranked data scientist as the #1 Best Job in America in 2018 for the third year in a row. As increasing amounts of data become more accessible, large tech companies are no longer the only ones in need of data scientists. The growing demand for data science professionals across industries, big and small, is being challenged by a shortage of qualified candidates available to fill the open positions. The need for data scientists shows no sign of slowing down in the coming years. LinkedIn listed data scientist as one of the most promising jobs in 2017, 2018 and 2019 along with multiple data-science-related skills as the most in-demand by companies.
