However this still leaves many with a feeling of hitting a glass ceiling for career growth.

The buzz around data skills at work is all over the career news, making it clear that we’ve got to adapt to changes. Along with generative AI, data skills were listed in a recent Forbes article titled “The 8 Biggest Future Of Work Trends In 2024 Everyone Needs To Be Ready For Now”.

Why learn Data Analytics Anyway?

Every corner of the business world is collecting data – sales, marketing, finance, operations, procurement, HR and so on. If you can handle, extract, transform, and visualise that data, this means more informed business decisions and business cases can be made. You may be an expert in your current field, however having a wealth of data skills at your disposal will mean you’re able to prove your strategies and better forecast the results they can bring.

Given the importance of data means there’s more demand from companies for these skills, which means more earning potential for you. This is not just in big companies for dedicated analyst roles, as smaller startups will also expect employees have wider range of skills for each function – which includes data. Additionally, if you enjoy your current role or field but are stuck, data skills will give you an extra edge over other candidates and again offer potential career growth.
