New Year’s Resolution – 5 Reasons to Reconsider Your Career Path in 2019
It’s almost time for 2019. Are you excited for the upcoming new year? Are you ready to finally grab the bull by the horns and become a data scientist? Are you data literate? Colaberry has flexible online and on-campus bootcamps starting January 2019 specifically designed to help you get a job as a data analyst. In this article, we bring you five specific reasons to reconsider your career path in 2019.
Are you Data Literate?
“Data illiteracy” is one of the leading factors in deciding which jobs are automated and which team of employees is cut loose. Outside of the tech industry, this seems to be an unknown phrase. Automation is focused on streamlining and using data to inform decisions.
If you are not prepared for this, you will face a huge challenge in the industries of the future. In fact, most people do not understand what data really is and how important it is to today’s evolving enterprises.
Every job includes data in some form or another – from the amount of new customers/ clients to the amount of website visitors and even how many sales were made within a specific quarter. Companies want to know that you have the skills to analyze and interpret data and then present it in an actionable way. This kind of thinking and skillset is something that Colaberry will train you in. We pride ourselves on the thousands of jobs we’ve helped our graduates earn. 2019 should be a time of reflection and action and you should give yourself the chance to excel and achieve your dreams. Here are some reasons why:
5 Reasons Why You Should Reconsider Your Career Path in 2019:
You Want To Stay Ahead of the Automation Curve
You are Underpaid & Underappreciated
You Want To Seize New Opportunities
You and Your Family Deserve A Better Life
Lack of Professional Development Opportunities In Your Career
1. You Want To Stay Ahead of the Automation Curve
Automation and the elimination of worker jobs is a popular topic in almost all areas of the world economy. According to McKinsey, in the US alone, between 39 and 73 million jobs stand to be automated within the next 5 years, which is around a third of the total workforce. Most of these jobs are being automated by robots. Additionally, companies are streamlining overall business processes. Career automation and a lack of data literacy are extremely important issues that need to be addressed and resolved by today’s tech workforce. Companies desperately need to adapt current teams and attract new talent to a new world built from two words: data science.
Now is your time to make the decision to take action and improve your life. Colaberry has courses beginning in January of 2019. Don’t get caught up in the automation curve and lose your job.
2. You’re Underpaid and Underappreciated
Do you feel like you’re underpaid and underappreciated? If so, don’t worry, you’re not alone. According to CNBC in a recent Indeed survey, “just 19 percent of workers in the U.S. feel comfortable with how much they're making. When Indeed asked how much more it would take for them to feel good about their salaries, 60 percent of participants said they'd need a raise of "at least $6,000.” Data scientists can start at $80,000 per year. Would that be a huge bump in your salary? Enterprises are keen on finding the most qualified talent with real-world project experience; Colaberry offers this specific experience through a customized curriculum that is full of industry-level projects and modules that focus on giving you the skills these companies are desperately looking for.
In addition to not being paid enough, today’s employees aren’t feeling appreciated. Maybe this is you, and you want to feel like your role has a purpose. It can be a challenge coming home from work feeling burned out or dissatisfied. You might not have any stories to tell your family. Colaberry wants to help you overcome these challenges and to help you reach new heights in your career.
3. You Want To Seize New Opportunities
We say it every year: “This year I am going to make a change. I am finally going to stick to my New Year’s resolutions and change my career path.” Unfortunately, it just doesn’t happen. 2019 needs to be the year you decide to invest in yourself and your family. The field of data science has so many new opportunities and is growing at an amazing rate.
According to Forbes, “There are 9.8 times more Machine Learning Engineers working today than five years ago, with 1,829 open positions listed on [LinkedIn] today. There are 6.5 times more Data Scientists than five years ago, and 5.5 times more Big Data Developers.” This rapid growth in data science has been nicknamed the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
4. You and Your Family Deserve a Better Life
Are you exhausted of the same old routine and looking for new challenges to give your family the return on investment for your hard work and time within your career? Now is the time to make that leap into data science. If you’re in a place where you are looking for a career with flexibility, challenge, and the opportunity to spend time with your family, data science would be the career for you. 2019 is the perfect time for you to choose one of Colaberry’s courses.
According to a Glassdoor survey, Google employees say "they can start off with three weeks of paid time off and can work their way up to five weeks if they stay with the company for five years. They also report they can take up to three months of unpaid sabbatical.” Most of these companies also give you the flexibility to work from home or from a remote location of your choosing. Is this something that appeals to you? Colaberry courses will help you transition to this exciting career field in 2019.
5. There’s a Lack of Professional Development Opportunities
2019 should be a time for growth and improving your skillset. Are you in a company that encourages lifelong learning and skill improvement? Does your management team see the value in learning new techniques that improve your efficiency? Do they invest in employee education? Most large companies, particularly in the data science field, offer professional skills training and funds for attending professional conferences where you’ll learn from thought leaders in your field. Colaberry works with large and medium size companies in some of the most in-demand areas to help you find the best role for you. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow as a professional in a field that is growing every day.
Classes begin in January 2019. Don’t miss your chance to make the right choice to improve the lives of your family and yourself in 2019. Begin working towards an exciting new career today. Click here to learn more
