While many predictions about the impact of the internet on our lives have required "heavy edits" or revisions, this article about careers in analytics seems like it could have been written yesterday. The actual dateline? July 4th 2001. (The article focused especially on web analytics, but the thesis applies more broadly in both online, offline, and hybrid contexts.)
As I mentioned in a comment to the author, at Fitzgerald Analytics we feel as certain in 2007 as she was in 2001 regarding the growing demand for Analytic experience.
For job seekers who share our interest, and confidence, in the continued growth of the analytics career path, take a look at the Analytics Career Path at Fitzgerald Analytics :-). If I can be of further assistance on this topic, don't hesitate to contact me.
