Careers in the technology world have been hot for several years now, but looking forward those hot jobs are focusing on a certain aspect of technology. Digital Insurance brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Top jobs for the next decade are behavioral scientist, data analyst.”

The next decade could see growing demand for behavioral scientists and data analysts. Understanding the “why” for organizations – why do consumers behave a certain way, what drives employees to engage, etc. – is driving new careers.

According to the United States of Labor Statistics, the employment of all computer and information research scientists is expected to rise 19 percent by the year 2026, which is deemed much faster than the average for all professions. About 5,400 new jobs are projected over the decade.

Employers use data scientists to solve all sorts of problems. In essence, data scientists are tasked to take raw data and use programming, visualization, and statistical modeling to extract insights.
