@BigDataGuru, I'm glad to share your interview - it gives an in-depth look at what a data scientist offers.

Also important to note is the growing demand for data scientists. Organizations have to be competitive to attract and keep this special breed of talent. The United Nations Global Pulse points out its advantage saying, "Many data scientists want to work for institutions that are doing something to help society and the world at large." http://www.sas.com/knowledge-exchange/business-analytics/innovation/next-up-for-private-sector-data-philanthropy-and-innovation/index.html

What else appeals to a data scientist when choosing where to work or who to work for?

This blog is an excellent resource for those looking to get more depth around a hot topic.  I hope my "day in the life" of a data scientist Job Interview on JobShadow.com and the other expert feedback here will help clarify the role and how it benefits clients and practitioners of predictive analytics alike. - @BigDataGuru on Twitter
