As it turns out, this is a fast-growing skill requirement for the HR field. In the past 60 days, there have been about 1,800 jobs advertised online that specify candidates should have good analytical skills. This is a 10% increase compared to the same 60-day period in 2012.

These jobs are likely to be slightly harder than HR jobs that don’t require strong analytical skills. The average HR job scores a 59 on our Hiring Scale (ranging from 1 to 99, with 99 being the hardest-to-fill conditions.) HR jobs with data analysis requirements score a 62 on the Hiring Scale.
