Talk Title: 
The Impact of Big Data on the Job Market – Results from a Job Mining Study
Talk Abstract: 

Job adverts in online portals provide an open data source to identify skill requirements in the employment market. We designed a job mining solution which uses text analysis techniques to gain detailed insight into current skill requirements for big data jobs. Based on the analysis of 80 014 job adverts collected in the period from June 2014 to April 2015, we show which kinds of big data jobs have evolved and which skill sets are typical of these. This information is valuable for educational decision makers to develop training services fitting the needs of the market.
