Last week, I had a ton of fun on the DATAcated show, talking with Kate about Analytics careers, specifically how aspiring data people can land their first role.

The topic was How to Get Your First Data Analyst Job. In case you missed it, you can check out the video below.

If you're in data or want to be, you probably know already know DATAcated and are likely one of the 150,000+ people who follow thought leader Kate Strachnyi. If somehow you're not familiar yet, you should check her out. She puts out a ton of great content and runs an awesome data conference. The next one is October 5th. You can signup here for free. Don't miss out!

Here are some of the things Kate and I talked about on the show...

  • Is being in Analytics still a good career decision?
  • Where should aspiring analysts start?
  • What do the various data career paths look like?
  • What are the tools people should be focusing on?
  • Is Excel an Analyst tool or not? (what do you think!?)
  • What's up with project portfolios? What does a good one look like?
  • and more!

Like I said, it was a lot of fun :)

Check out the show here:


We also talked a bit about Maven's new Data Analyst bootcamp.

Technically, the application deadline is today, September 1st. But we still have a couple of seats we could fill, and will keep the form live through Friday, September 3rd as long as there are seats available.

Secure your spot while you can!

Apply here.

PS - yes, anyone mentioning DATAcated in their application still gets 20% off the tuition :)
