Analytics Careers for Today

Demand is high for analytics know-how, particularly with the higher volumes and access to data today. Companies value people who know how to ask the right questions, find valuable stories within data, and apply these insights to inform decision-making.

Industry reports document a digital skills gap in marketing and analytics. Grovo.com reports 90% of marketers consider themselves under-skilled at digital marketing, and 93% of digital marketers report it is ‘harder to recruit people with the right skills than ever before.’

These vacancies mean opportunities for people graduating with consumer and audience analytics skills. Job posting searches in the area of analytics generate thousands of results. Click for a listing of current careers in the audience analytics field.*
