The Best Job in America
Data analytics and data science jobs hold the top spot on Glassdoor’s 50 Best Jobs in America for 2020. An appealing $100,000 median base salary, the ability to work in a wide variety of industries, and consistent sector growth keep data scientists at the top.
Common data science and analytics-enabled jobs—Chief Executive Officer, Chief Data Officer, Director of IT, Human Resources Manager, Financial Manager, and Marketing Manager—rely on analytics talent to increase productivity and efficiency, so candidates with strong programming and applied data science backgrounds stand out.
The World Economic Forum forecasts that machines will perform the majority of business tasks by 2025. The rapid evolution of machines and algorithms in the workplace could create 133 million new roles in place of seventy-five million that will be displaced between now and 2022. Employers in this swiftly changing landscape favor candidates with strong programming and applied data science backgrounds.
“A big strength of the Data Analytics certificate is how interactive and practical the courses are. The weekly session brings everyone together, and the final team project gives students the opportunity to become confident with the tools they've learned while engaging in the sort of experience that scales very well to real-world job situations.”
