How to get a data science job

You’ve done it. You just spent months learning how to analyze data and make predictions. You’re now able to go from raw data to well structured insights in a matter of hours. After all that effort, you feel like it’s time to take the next step, and get your first data science job.

Unfortunately for you, this is where the process starts to get much harder. There’s no clear path to go from having data science skills to getting a data science job. You’ll need to put in a lot of hard work to forge your own.

But don’t give up hope! Getting a data science job after learning on your own is very possible. In this post, we’ll discuss the things you should be doing to put yourself in position to start getting data science interviews. In a subsequent post, we’ll cover the interview process itself, and how to prepare.

Afterwards, you might get a snazzy new company laptop!
