Job Opportunities / Roles Available in the area of Big Data

What do you think about the term Big Data?

Today Big Data is frequently used in many different ways. To some Big data means a big table of data e.g client information, and to others it means data captured by social network e.g. Twitter or Facebook.

Big Data constantly evolve in parable to technology development. When we first spoke about Big Data many years ago, data size is just some Gigabytes but now, we are already utilizing Terabyte. Up next will be Petabyte.

Big Data needs to fulfill these conditions having, volume, variety and velocity. Some theorist mentioned five conditions conditions, volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value with some adding Variety and Visualization into the mix.

Being a specialist in Big-Data Psychologist, I use data to understand and answer different topics on Life Sciences and Healthcare.

For example, to analyse an incident an Mental Health in a country and its evolution, , extracting the data directly of each hospital. This include every category like  Depression disorder, Anexiety disorder, Alzheimer Disease, Parkinson Disease.

This creates a real radiography of actual situation. You will be able to compare data of other countries, or even to create predictive models in function of expected evolution.

Another application of Big Data in Health Care is about the predicted effect of medications in functions of thousands of data of each patient. in function of this genetic data, family background.

Where do you see Big Data and its technologies create the most impact?

The application of Big Data in the finance sector and in Business is the best illustration.

New advances in the healthcare sector is promising. You can now design individualized medication, understand the map of the brain for specific illness like Alzheimer’s disease, or design preventions plans based on individual characteristics are some examples of Big Data application.

What are the job opportunities / roles available in the area of Big Data?

There is a big demand in jobs like Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Data Miner or Data Visualization Expert workers etc…

Countries with the most demand in these positions are USA and India. This is only the beginning. Reports have shown that there will be thousands of new vacancies for Big Data related position. In fact, MNCs are actively seeking expets in Big Data.

Characteristics that Every HR Professional Should Possess

WHAT ARE SOME FACTORS THAT IMPACT YOUR DECISION TO CHOOSE HUMAN RESOURCE AS A CAREER?

I used to dream of becoming a professor. However, my perspective changed after completing my post graduate studies. I love being in groups and seeing immediate results.

HR can make a direct difference to employees and it is the HR’s responsibility to develop employees, providing benefits and insurance, plus shaping engagement culture that can change lives.

Another significant role of HR is to assist employees in developing their career through on job assignment, training, and coaching by others. Helping employees develop their skills to enhance their job knowledge, and performance will not only benefit the employee but the company as a whole. Such development opportunities will help an employee to grow both personally and professionally.

WHAT ARE SOME CHARACTERISTICS THAT YOU BELIEVE EVERY HUMAN RESOURCE PROFESSIONAL SHOULD POSSESS?

Being TRUSTWORTHY is one of the essential characteristics of HR personnel. We are the people employees turn to when they are having issues in the organization such as salary and benefits, misconducts, or personal challenges impacting work. It is important for employees to know that their  HR personnel is someone they can speak to and seek advice on various areas.

INTEREST IN PEOPLE. The heart and soul of HR are about people and relationships. We are responsible for maintaining and managing the employer/employee relationships to boost the morale and motivation. For this reason, HR personnel needs to be emotionally intelligent, keep an open-mind and have good communication skills to support

Lastly, a successful HR needs to have a GOOD LISTENING SKILL.  Letting someone talk through an issue is more important than actively trying to solve it. HR must be able to listen patiently to the problems employees are facing. Don’t interrupt until they have conveyed their message.

What are some factors that impact your decision to choose marketing as a career?

What are some factors that impact your decision to choose marketing as a career?

I founded my copywriting business firstly as a sole proprietorship in 2003 and incorporated it in 2005. At this stage I just wanted to be able to work from home and look after my two toddlers, and a home computer and access to the Internet allowed me to do that. I didn’t really envision running a business at this point.

I recognised a need for copywriters in Singapore, which were lacking at the time and knew this was the ideal niche for me with my strength in English as a former English teacher and my love for writing.

I realised that a lot of design agencies in Singapore did not employ in-house copywriters so I phoned around and offered my services as an outsourced copywriter. Before long I had too many projects and ended up setting up a commercial office and hiring staff and things grew organically from there.

What are some characteristics that you believe every marketing professional should possess?

The ability to organise work and time is crucial. We are up against tight deadlines and the ability to meet deadlines and work with looming deadlines ahead of you is critical.
I find with a lot of the copywriters I have trained, the main weakness is in planning of the work. Not enough time is spent on research and organising information to really understand the subject matter and the target audience before they sit down to write. The result then is a weak confused piece that misses the key USPs. I’m a huge fan of mind maps, and like to get everything out on one page before I start. I tell my writers that they should give 70% of the allotted time to the preparation and 30% to the writing.

When you are clear about what needs to be communicated, for any skilled copywriter, the writing can be done fairly quickly at this point.

Curiosity would be another quality to possess. A marketer needs to be constantly asking questions and digging deeper into the subject matter to get to the real motivations to buy. You should become an advocate for the product or service and really get in there.

And love what you do.

What is the biggest challenge faced by marketing professionals today?

Competition is always a challenge and there are more marketers out there now than there used to be. Being able to stand out and be different is important. Having a strong brand and sense of identity, and knowing and communicating your worth is important so you compete on value rather than price. Then over time, having a strong track record helps to set you apart.
