Data Mining as a Top Career

More good news for data miners:

Data mining. The field involves extracting specific information or patterns from large databases. Career prospects are available in areas including advertising technology, scientific research and law enforcement.
I think they got it right: data mining (and it's siblings Predictive Analytics and Business Analytics) are growing in their appeal. But more importantly, I see organizations believing they can do it.

Of course time will tell. One sign will be how many more resumes (unsolicited) I get!

Every day more and more data is stored which needs to be processed by somebody to extract meaningful patterns. This is why I believe that data mining will be one of the most important jobs in the future.

It makes sense, there will always be information that needs to be saved and well documented. Sounds like its a good plan to stay in the industry!
