Intro to Careers in Digital Analytics
Digital analytics is a booming field both in scope of work and in industry size. While it originally focused on website user behavior, analytics professionals today are often responsible for analyzing vast amounts of data from mobile, social, search, display, email and other customer acquisition channels both online and off.
The skills required to be a good digital analyst include having a head for numbers, a flair for marketing, a broad technical understanding and a knack for everything Internet. Excellent analysts are also good at asking questions, naturally curious, and able to connect the dots to tell a meaningful story with the data.
