Getting a data science job is as easy as learning skills like Python and Jupyter, competing in Kaggle competitions, getting certified, and submitting your CV on job portals, right?
Recently, Kaggle hit 5 million unique users. Looking at other communities, Towards Data Science gets 20 million monthly views. AI researcher Andrew Ng has 4 million learners across his Coursera courses.
In the meantime, there are just 17,100 ML Engineers worldwide. As of writing this article, there are 2,100 open Machine Learning Engineer roles on LinkedIn, worldwide. Of those, around 80 are at the FAANGs.

To be fair, if we include general data science and AI researcher roles, there are 86,000 total open positions worldwide. Nonetheless, calling data science “competitive” would be the understatement of the year.

With the world starting to open amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of jobs available in data science sees an upward trend in India as we inch closer to providing vaccines for everyone.
The number of vacancies for data science jobs on the top job portals in India increased by 53% from when India eased the lockdown restrictions on June 8 to Nov 30, according to the data collated by AIMResearch. Although it is difficult to ascertain the exact number of open jobs, the top job portals in India, Naukri, LinkedIn, and MonsterIndia together showed almost 125,000 vacancies on Nov 30.
However, the pandemic did result in a decrease in the number of open data science jobs at the start as vacancies reduced from 101,562 from Dec 17 last year to 81,704 on June 8. Despite this decrease, India’s share of open data science jobs in the world increased from 7.2% in January to 9.8% in August.

Data science comprises collecting, manipulating, storing, and analyzing data. It facilitates data-driven approaches for decision-making, thus fostering an environment of continuous growth.
Amazon’s online shopping site serves as a prime example of how data collection can improve performance. Amazon customizes the home page views of users based on what they search, purchase, and spend. In other words, it remembers datasets and provides useful product recommendations to fit customer needs.
