Data Mining and Analytics hot career

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have published a list of job-market hotspots, and in the top ten is Data Mining and Analytics.  The study is based on enrollment figures, national employment statistics and interviews with San Diego business executives.

One interesting tidbit from the study: “A study by students and faculty at the University of California Berkeley found that the amount of data in the world doubles every three years.  For this reason, more employees are needed in the data mining industry to drill down, analyze and interpret the data.”
