What type of employers are hiring Data Analysts?  

With the focus on data increasing across nearly all industries, almost every organisation will need professionals to help them make sense of their data, so you’ve no shortage of choice.    
Larger established corporations with massive business data stored in their ERP and digital platforms will always require in-house data professionals to manage that data. Internet and software companies tend to also build data-centric teams. Of course, many start-ups and scale-ups today also recognise the importance of data skills to help them fine-tune their product offering and grow sales.   

What qualifications or experience are beneficial to my applications for Data Analyst jobs?  

A degree in math, statistics, or some form of computing will certainly be useful.   
However, due to the acute shortage of skilled Data Analysts, organisations are prioritising proven experience over qualifications. Experience and expertise in Python, R, and SQL are especially prized by employers. Getting relevant certifications will also help to strengthen your application!   

What are the advantages of working as a Data Analyst?  

With data powering the world around us, data is an exciting area to be working in. Data Analysts make sense of complex data and impact business decisions, and are essential personnel in most industries and functions, including Marketing, R&D, and the development of new technology.   
On a more practical note, the surging demand for Data Scientists and Data Analysts compared to the relatively small pool of available talent in these areas means you have many future career development possibilities to look forward to!  

What technical and soft skills does a Data Analyst need to have?  

Technical skills are critical for Data & Analytics professionals. You’ll need to know your tools inside and out and be highly skilled in statistical programming. Excel and visualisation tools such as PowerBI, Tableau, or Qlik are key, as well as having an understanding of databases such as SQL, Oracle, MySQL or No SQL. Computer programming skills, SQL coding, and knowledge of Big Data technology will also be helpful.   
These technical skills show that you’re able to understand and use data to get to the most viable solution, but it’s skills like logical thinking, and problem solving, plus the ability to communicate and influence stakeholders – both technical and non-technical – with your findings that will set you apart from the competition.
