How you get a Data Science job

Jobs in the field of data science are in great demand. But how do you get a job like this?

The first thing you have to do is set personal goals.

  • What do you actually want to achieve?

  • Where do you see yourself in the next few years?

  • What exactly do you want to do?

  • What kind of company do you want to work for?

  • Where and how do you want to live? Do you possibly want to go abroad?

These are all questions you have to ask yourself first and then define your goals.

Afterwards you should research job advertisements. Go to the best search platforms and see what jobs are available there. For example, who advertises jobs in the field of Data Engineering and what are the contents of these jobs.

Which tools do they need and what qualifications do you need for these jobs?

When you have researched all this, you should write down the important points for yourself.

That way you will find out what kind of profile or knowledge you need.

Then you start a simple project. Start by looking at the tools and technologies you wrote down in step 2 based on the job posting.

Here comes often a problem that many people encounter. Frequently the questions are: How do I start a simple project? What is a simple project?

It is important that you document your project. This is of utmost importance. You must document what you do. All the experiences you gain must be documented.

So it's important that you learn how to document on GitHub. It's just as helpful to learn how to write blog posts or create videos.

When you have learned all this, you should expand your project. Go deeper.

And you should also continue to document these further processes and experiences.
