If you have been following the news lately, you may have seen several articles about the American workforce and a trend that has been coined, “The Great Resignation.” Employees are leaving their old jobs for better ones (more than 4 million US workers quit in April), often with a pit stop for skills training. As a country, we are taking stock and retooling, and that includes the state of our skills and careers. Financial giant Prudential has been reporting regularly on survey results regarding worker expectations and the coming talent migration. But in a sense, this is an old prediction now coming to fruition. Back in October, the World Economic Forum published The Future of Jobs Report showing some interesting transitions – such as movement from hospitality to healthcare analytics and higher ed to software development. From these reports and others, and from our GrayData, we can see more interest and demand for training in skills that fall under the category of data science.
