70% of analytics openings are for candidates with less than 5 years of experience with Bengaluru being a hub for data science jobs.
NEW DELHI: Close to 97,000 positions related to analytics and data science are currently vacant due to a dearth of qualified talent, according to a study conducted by Great Learning, an ed-tech company for working professionals.

A majority of these job openings are for junior level roles and the number of unfilled positions has seen an increase of 45% over last year, indicating the widening talent gap in the industry. 70% of analytics openings are for candidates with less than 5 years of experience with Bengaluru being a hub for data science jobs.

The top 10 organisations that have posted the highest number of job openings this year are Accenture, Amazon, KPMG, Honeywell, Wells Fargo, E&Y, Dell International, eClerx Services and Deloitte, according to findings of the study.

“A 45% increase in the supply gap in just one year indicates the pace at which businesses are adopting analytics and data-based decision making. In the last few years, many large players have been forced to acqui-hire talent to keep the wind in their sails," said Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-founder, Great Learning.
