Your Data & Advanced Analytics recruitment questions, answered

What's the market like for Data and Analytics professionals in Malaysia?  

Data and Analytics professionals are definitely in high demand right now. Getting more from data to enable smarter decisions is top of the list for organisations of all sizes and industries. Combine this with the rise of predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and automation, and it’s clear that experienced and talented Data and Analytics professionals are being snapped up by employers. However, scarcity of talent in this area means it will be more challenging finding candidates with the right skill sets – but that’s where we come in.   

Which Data professionals will I struggle to find when recruiting?  

As organisations look to change the way they engage with their customers, their service models, the way they operate and move towards automation, data professionals such as Data Analysts, Data Engineers, Business Intelligence Developers, Data Scientists and Database Developers are in high demand. On top of technical skills and practical experience, leadership experience is especially valued as organisations look to build and mould their data teams. As a result, finding the right people with the right skills will be challenging, and you can expect a lot of competition!  

What are the top 3 skills for Data professionals?  

The technical skills a Data specialist needs will of course vary with the role, so it is hard to limit it, but the basics like strong SQL and Excel, as well as good database knowledge and experience with visualisation tools are a given.   
The key skillsets that you should keep an eye out for are solid hands-on experience with programming languages like Python and R for data analysis and data modelling, as well as an understanding of various data lake environments, including Azure, Hadoop, and AWS. Programming and software development skills would also take your competitive up a notch.   

When recruiting Data professionals, what other skills should I look out for?  

It’s rare for good Data professionals to be hired just based on their technical experience. Keep a lookout for those who show how they stay updated with industry advancements and best practices in Data and Analytics.   
With technology and requirements changing all the time, don’t forget about the soft skills - especially communication, problem-solving, critical-thinking and attention to detail.  For many roles, you’ll want someone with great communication and delivery, who can confidently present and discuss data with stakeholders across business as well as technical teams. Other soft skills to help drive your data strategy include strong analytical skills, inquisitiveness and being able to approach challenges differently.
