There's no shortage of the need for skilled data analysts and data scientists. A quick look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirms this:

Employment of computer and information research scientists is projected to grow 15 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.

"Rapid growth in data collection by businesses will lead to an increased need for data-mining services," the site shows.

"Computer scientists will be needed to write algorithms that help businesses make sense of very large amounts of data. With this information, businesses understand their consumers better, making the work of computer and information research scientists increasingly vital."
