"The Data Scientist Shortage is Huge. Here’s How to Beat It." by Metis Executive Director of Data Science
By Metis • December 28, 2018
In a newly published article on Inside Big Data, Metis Executive Director of Data Science Roberto Reif writes about the long-lasting data scientist shortage in business and gives detailed steps for how to stop the problem in its tracks.
"It’s no secret that employers are looking for data scientists," he writes. "Businesses of all sizes have woken up to the fact that data science has the potential to drive efficiencies, mine new insights from decades of accumulated data sets, and otherwise transform their businesses...But while data scientist has been ranked the “#1 Job in America” for three years running, according to careers website Glassdoor, there’s still a shortage of talent to fill the huge need employers have."
How can this be done? Read the full article for Reif's breakdown of what needs to happen.
"What they need is (1) a strategic roadmap toward building data science skills and (2) an effective hiring and resourcing plan," he continues.
We're proud to be included on Course Report's 21 Best Data Science Bootcamps of 2020 list! To create the list, their team considered both online and in-person bootcamps that teach immersive data science and/or data analytics, looking at alumni reviews, curriculum, and quality of instruction to determine who made the cut.
In a book published last week, read interviews with two Metis team members – Chief Data Scientist Debbie Berebichez and Data Scientist Alice Zhao – about their experiences as mothers and data scientists.
From today through October 2nd, when you enroll in any of our remaining 2020 Bootcamp Prep Courses, you'll save 33% on tuition. We hope this reduced tuition provides opportunities for those interested in building data science skills in a live online format, taught by industry leaders.
