Lynne Mysliwiec replied to Jason Monte's discussion Web Analytics vs Data Mining/Predictive Modeling
"Yes - there is a great deal of demand for data mining/predictive modeling people. Not only that, but there's competition between employers for the best talent & salaries are much better for heavy-duty quant people than they are for entry…"
