Hiring Trends & Insights
Technology will continue shaping our world and careers. In May of 2019, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Situation reported that the unemployment rate for tech employees reached a 20-year low of 1.3%. In addition to increased technical roles there will also be an increase in roles that leverage “human” skills, that is roles that cannot be easily replicated by automation.
Artificial Intelligence has been the talk of the town for years, and now, many of the predictions around this concept are becoming a reality. AI is no longer a buzz term explaining the future of our technology – In fact, it is already a part of the workplace and has begun reshaping positions, removing human employees from various job functions and increasing efficiencies across industries.

BIG DATA ANALYSTS
Everywhere you look someone is writing or talking about their Big Data solution or strategy.

In other words, it is data that is so large and/or so complex that you can’t manage it using traditional data processing applications.
