CAREER STATS FOR DATA SCIENTISTS

Job Growth for Data Scientists

Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and Internet-connected home appliances—most of us can’t go even a day without at least one of these devices. But, did you know such technology is just as useful to the companies making these gadgets as it is to us? That’s right. Because they all track and store information about consumer and individual behavior, which can help companies make informed decisions and customize customer experiences.

And that’s just one sector: data insights are vital to the federal government; research and development in science and engineering fields; colleges and universities; and software companies.[4]

The big data revolution is especially beneficial to “workers who have the analytical skills needed to draw conclusions from the raw data,” indicates the Bureau of Labor Statistics.[5]

Looking at the job growth statistics, we’d say this might be an understatement. Because they are PHENOMENAL.

Data analysts fall into at least two BLS occupational classifications: computer and information research scientists and mathematicians and statisticians.

Occupation Job Growth through 2028 (National Average)
All Occupations 5 percent
Computer and Information Research Scientists 16 percent
Mathematicians and Statisticians 30 percent
[6][7]

The job of a data scientist has only grown sexier. More employers than ever are looking to hire data scientists.’ – Andrew Flowers, economist at Indeed. [8]

  • 344% – That’s how much demand for data scientists grew from 2013 to 2018, according to a report by Indeed and Dice.

  • 14% – Growth in searches by job seekers with data science training.[9]

What does this mean to workers with data science certifications? A robust job market with plenty of opportunities.

Data is the fabric of modern business strategy and, therefore, data scientists indispensable. And not just to big corporations. To EVERYONE.

To acquire and retain today’s increasingly empowered customers, companies need to harness the insights in their data to personalize experiences at scale. Data scientists are crucial in turning the massive amount of data companies capture into action. They’ve always been in high demand, but until recently, only large enterprises and digital natives were willing to make the significant investment. Now, almost everyone is.’ -Brandon Purcell, an analyst at Forrester Research[13]

Work wherever you want—well almost. That’s the perk of having a super in-demand skillset. Chances are you’ll be able to choose from a variety of companies and locales in which to grow your new career in data science.

Who wants to feel like their work doesn’t matter? Maybe slackers don’t care. But, you’re likely here reading about our Data Science training program because you want MORE. More money. More opportunity to grow professionally. And, certainly, more career satisfaction. With companies depending on you to inform vital business decisions impacting potentially millions of dollars, you could very well get it as a data scientist.

Change. It’s a constant in life and the hallmark of the tech sector. Woz U’s Agile team training methodology gives you not only the skills for a career in data science but also the flexibility to excel in the industry.

Finding the time to upskill can be as challenging as learning a new profession. Align our Data Science online training program to your schedule, not the other way around.

Just because there’s a high demand for data scientists doesn’t mean the job market isn’t competitive. And a professional presentation can be one of the best ways to differentiate yourself from other candidates. We provide the support you need to show up polished to interviews.
