As a data scientist, you help to gain insight into the vast amounts of data our society generates. Currently  the huge shortage of data scientists is becoming a serious constraint in many sectors. Sectors like business, energy, government, healthcare, intelligence and security, and logistics are waiting for people like you. And, since the application areas for data science are very broad, you can work in a field that sparks your own personal interest.
