A day in the life of a data scientist


14 Oct, 2016 09:00 am

The role of data scientist has emerged as one of the hottest jobs this year, after employment review website Glassdoor named it the top job in their 2016 ranking.



The future for such analysts also looks bright as businesses increasingly base their decisions the data they collect and rely on such scientists to interpret the information and turn it into actionable insight.

However, a major part of a data scientist's day is not spent crunching numbers. Instead, an estimated 50 percent of their time is spent in meetings.

This is because they must both communicate their interpretations of their data analysis in a way that is of value for business needs. They also must spend a lot of time learning what the business needs are. 

When not in meetings, they spend roughly 20 percent of their time doing computational work and the rest of the time interpreting data.
