Process of Learning Data Science and Preparing for the Role

  • 1.  Process of Learning Data Science and Preparing for the Role

    Posted Wed September 19, 2018 04:08 PM
    Hello All,

    I'm currently in the process of learning about Data Science. I'm taking different courses and I'm following the community to gain perspective on what being a data scientists means and what skills are need for the job. So far, I like everything I've studied about data science and my curiosity about the role grows each day.

    So, given the fact I am preparing to become a data scientist, I would like feedback on how I'll know I'm ready for the role and where can I go to see Data Science opportunities with IBM?

    Thank you!

    Hello Adrian Ivanciu 
    I am glad to share my experience and knowledge regarding Data Scientist with you. Honestly saying there is no parameter which you can apply to know whether you are ready for Data Scientist post or not. The best thing you can do is apply for the job and if you are outlisted you have the capabilities for becoming a Data Scientist and if you don't get selected , don't be sad you need to gain more experience on the fiend of data science. 
    The other way to look whether you are ready to becoming a data scientist is to test your skills in the field of :
    • Statistics
    • common metrics
    • machine learning
    • tools
    • mathematics and complexities
    • real live numbers
    • ability to handle Data
    If you think you have good knowledge and skills about the above mention topics then you are indeed Ready to Become a Data Scientist.
