[Objective] This study analyzes the requirements of big data related positions, aiming to identify high-quality candidates for the companies. [Methods] We retrieved job postings in the field of big data from major recruitment websites during the first quarter of 2017. Then, we used the TF-IDF, word2vec, and k-means algorithms to cluster the texts semantically, which were optimized with the help of silhouette coefficient. [Results] We obtained very good clustering results, and divided the job requirements into three categories of capability, education background and work experiences. [Limitations] First, the formats of job announcement posted on different websites were not unified, which affected the data cleaning and clustering. Second, the training set for word2vec was small due to insufficient data retrieved from the Web. [Conclusions] We found that the big data related jobs do not require advanced degrees and the companies prefer experienced candidates. Those applicants with no relevant experience will also be considered. The candidates’ professionalism is more important than their computer skills.
