Learn Excel2. Learn SQL3. Learn ETL & Data warehousing4. Learn some coding language (java, python, e.t.c)5. Be ready to adapt, change, learn and unlearn all that you know.

A key differentiator for a data scientist is to be able to build primary prototypes/algorithms for products or prescriptive advice for a company. To be frank, if you do not have a good understanding of ML/supervised learning, model production, and statistical inferences, the role is more of an generic analyst role. Not saying it's not valuable, but you can not model and build reproducible knowledge from a million samples in a worksheet.

Being a student of Economics (with low grades and high interest) and Management, I always found visualization as a point of my interest. Then I started to learn how to make infographics for untitled big NGO with a sense of data visualizing. At the same time, I got some interest to deal with data, so I learnt basic of R and started basic (survey) data analysis. But I think I can offer more than that and now I am planning to go for masters in Data Science. Do you think I am on the right track? Note that, before starting my masters, I am also going to sharpen my statistics and linear algebra knowledge. Vinnie Bolisetti September 29, 2019 at 4:03 pm Reply Good video man!
