Job Outcomes in Austin, Texas
Those who complete the online data analytics program can be qualified for a number jobs including:
- Data analysts are responsible for collecting, cleaning, sorting, and analyzing large amounts of data. These individuals are crucial to today’s businesses, allowing for a strategic approach to making important organizational decisions and understanding their customers. While an analyst’s choice of technology will depend on the company or project they’re working with, most tend to have a basic mastery of programming in Excel, SQL databases, Python, and Tableau — and that’s just scratching the surface. To better perform their duties, data analysts often work to build custom data systems and methods for collection and data analysis before communicating their findings to company stakeholders in non-technical format. In addition to mastering industry-relevant databases and libraries, data analysts are also expected to be well-versed in identifying trends and patterns, producing easy-to-read reports, and collaborating across teams. While it’s the data analyst’s main responsibility to deliver insight, it’s just as important that they are able to clearly communicate those insights so a company or client can make a decision that best fits their big-picture goals moving forward. As a result, soft skills are equally important to professional success as technical skills, and a data analytics boot camp can help aspiring analysts master a variety of hard and soft skills to bring to the job.
According to Indeed, the top companies hiring data analysts in Austin, Texas, include Deloitte, Amazon, Accenture, and Visa.
- With the rise of Big Data, these skilled professionals have become in-demand across industries as businesses work to leverage the massive amounts of information they’ve collected. This newer role in the tech world straddles IT and business, and since both fields require a fundamental understanding of math and statistics, many current data scientists actually got their start in analytics. Before an analyst can sort through a dataset to draw valuable insights, a data scientist is responsible for collecting that data and converting it to a usable format that can then be organized and analyzed, and are also often in charge of writing the code that performs the analysis itself. To be successful in the role, data scientists should have a strong grasp of programming languages — Python and R being the most popular for the field — as well as a solid understanding of data visualization, data preparation, machine learning, deep learning, and text analytics technologies. Much like data analysts, soft skills like communication and time management are just as crucial to the role of a data scientist. A data analytics boot camp can help fill in the gaps through hands-on projects and peer collaboration, and can prepare learners for a job in the field through real-world working scenarios and career support services.
According to Indeed, the top companies hiring Data Scientists in Austin, Texas, include Expedia, Intel, IBM, and PayPal.
- Simply put, business analysts are problem-solving powerhouses who work with businesses to solve current and future problems. Working alongside key stakeholders and decision-makers, business analysts must be able to clearly communicate advice and guidance in order to efficiently facilitate business needs, which they then turn around to communicate to internal or external IT teams — or vice versa. The tasks they perform on any given day will depend on the project they’re working on, what stage of the project they’re in, and additional variables involved; they might perform analyses of business needs, manage or assist in the development of a project, perform QA testing, or align with stakeholders, among other responsibilities. To be successful in the role, candidates should have in-depth experience in forecasting, budgeting, and financial analysis as well as an understanding of key performance indicators (KPIs), as well as a familiarity with analytics tools like SQL and Tableau. It also helps to have a strong knowledge base around regulatory and reporting requirements. Of course, much like any other data-heavy position, soft skills like collaboration and communication are must-haves if you want to stand out to employers and get the job done. The hands-on projects and career support offered through a data analytics boot camp can quickly provide aspiring business analysts with the real-world experience and they need to provide genuine value within a company and implement meaningful change.
