Good data analysis skills are rare


I’ve been very surprised how rare good data analysis skills are in industry, even among those trained in technical disciplines.

Scientists are groomed to perform in-depth data analysis well because it is a critical part of figuring out how nature works, and this is the fundamental goal of science. This positions people trained in science to bring a very useful and rather rare skill set to industry.

Keep this in mind as you sell yourself and design your career.
