Transition Your Career To Data Science
Transition Your Career To Data Science


Data science may sound exciting, but how do you actually get your first job as a data scientist? Whether you’re currently a student or making a mid-career change, figuring out how to get started in a career in data science can feel daunting. Compounding the fact that “data science” is still a relatively broadly-defined term, there are an overwhelming number of resources available for learning technical skills that may or may not be relevant and can be difficult to prioritize. In this talk, we’ll lay out some of the possible ways to transition to a career in data science. We’ll help you define the target outcome by discussing the different flavors of data science roles that exist. Then we’ll work backwards and discuss the concrete things you can do to get to that goal.
