November 25: A recent survey of 100 hiring managers conducted by an ed-tech company revealed startling facts about the demand-supply gap in Data Science positions. The managers were almost unanimous that a wide gap existed. While 57% felt that this was at the entry-level, around 27% opined that the gap persisted even at mid-level positions. The biggest gaps were in the areas of Natural Language Processing followed by Artificial Intelligence, Automation, Computer Vision, Analytics and Machine Learning. There are so many companies offering high paying jobs in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science but not enough supply of qualified professionals to fill them.
So how will this gap be addressed? What can be done to increase the supply of skilled professionals to address this talent deficit?
Startups like AnalytixLabs have been observing this gap over the last decade and aiming to bridge it by creating tailored courses in Data Science and analytics that can transform students into skilled professionals. Combined with a placement guarantee program, AnalytixLabs takes its courses to a logical conclusion by ensuring that the students get placed in reputed companies worldwide.
The employment guarantee program offered byAnalytixLabshelps stand apart from its peers as students get job opportunities with industry leaders like American Express, Accenture, AbsolutData, Axtria, McKinsey, Bank of America, etc. This gives students the confidence to invest in these exclusively designed courses that make them ready for real-world challenges.
AnalytixLabs combines the latest curriculum, carefully structured project work and doubts clearance sessions to ensure students grasp the skills correctly and transform into industry-ready professionals.
