Do You Really Need a “Sexy” Data Scientist?

  • Tom Davenport and D.J. Patil argued in their Harvard Business Review article that being a data scientist is the sexiest job of the 21st century. Data scientists help companies turn their data (big data and small data) into valuable insights. But do the people who have the sexiest job of the 21st century have to be sexy? The question is not as crazy as you might think, because sexy or beautiful people, both men and women, tend to be more successful in their job. Research shows that they earn more, get hired sooner, get promoted quicker, sell more, and even get a bank loan more easily than their less attractive counterparts. Believe that? Surprisingly, there’s substantial research to support the theory!
