Is it a good idea to demo the projects built in hackathons(hackathon achievements ) during interviews?
Ryan Fischbach
25:16
Do you recommend trying DS interviews right away and then going to “stepping stone” jobs after some failures or going right in to “stepping stone” jobs? Does it depend your background?
Nick Singh
26:03
Great question Ryan - look’s like someone read the Break into Data Science guide and learned about stepping stone jobs (https://www.nicksingh.com/posts/break-into-data-science-the-definitive-guide)
Nick Singh
26:10
Will answer soon :)
Nithin Dharmaraj
26:12
Could you breakdown the data science interview with percentages(math, statistics, programming,ML, SQL)
Aadit Kamat
26:42
What do you think about DataCamp? It introduces you to the required concepts but there’s a lot of filling in the blanks which is not very helpful as you are developing the scripts to do particular data science tasks
Camille Fougere
27:24
What sort of companies are more likely to have generalist data science positions?

Elizabeth Leong

How are you able to find job postings that are looking for entry level data scientist positions? It seems like a lot of the data scientist positions are looking for at least 2+ years of experience.
Nick Singh
51:07

Pratima Satish
