Speaking of web data analyst jobs …
Did anyone else notice the quick mention on page 14 of the current BusinessWeek (May 29, 2006) talking about “Dearth of the Salesmen?” It’s talking about how difficult it is for the advertising agencies to hire talented folks of late and how salaries are heading up again. In the second paragraph the article says:
- “Buying online ads and crunching impact-measurement data (a skill in high demand) require sophisticated quantitative approaches … one reason Web advertisers and site publishers also are vying for candidates.” (Emphasis mine.)
Hmmm, that description sounds vaguely familiar, doesn’t it?
Perhaps this is why my friend Chris D’Allesandro recently jumped over to Organic, Inc. from JWT? An event I haven’t had time to publicly note but I certainly do wish Chris all the best in his new role heading up web analytics for Organic in Detroit Rock City.
Either way, you know when BusinessWeek is talking about it, it’s a thing. Maybe next Fortune will do a full-length piece on the subject …
… stranger things have happened.
