Job Description for Data Mining Analyst

Data mining analysts use data analysis software to perform tasks such as data analysis, research, data mining, computational analysis and relationship modeling. They report findings to their internal or external clients, including by using bar charts, histograms, scatterplots and other visual tools. These analysts work with operational data (such as sales, cost and inventory), non-operational data (such as industry sales) and/or metadata (such as logical database design and relationships). When they work for the retail industry, data mining analysts help interpret historical patterns and future trends relevant to consumer buying behavior; their findings enable their companies to determine relationships among internal factors (such as price, staff skills, promotional types and product positioning) and external factors (such as competition, customer demographics and economic conditions). Data mining analysts must keep their skills up to date by reading professional journals and attending relevant classes; they may be required to train new analysts as well.
