Want Atlanta's hottest jobs? Boost your tech skills

KENNESAW, Ga. (May 31, 2016) — Excerpt of Article: Reuben Hilliard didn’t have any trouble landing a good-paying job as a data analyst at a health care provider – even though he is still in school.

After a decade in the workforce, Hilliard, 33, re-enrolled at Kennesaw State University a couple years ago because he had promised his late father he would get a degree. His growing expertise in statistics got him hired even though he is still not quite done with a program that will earn him both bachelors and masters.

“I kind of re-tooled myself and I learned the skills to hit the ground running,” he said.
