what did I miss
sorry just log in
Is it a good idea to demo the projects built in hackathons(hackathon achievements ) during interviews?
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?
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)
Will answer soon :)
Could you breakdown the data science interview with percentages(math, statistics, programming,ML, SQL)
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
What sort of companies are more likely to have generalist data science positions?

What is this Zoom meeting about since I sign in zoom late?
Was having technical difficulty
Alys, this is about Data Science - the DS job hunt, the DS interview, working at Facebook, and general career hunting tips
If you don’t mind sharing, what’s your success rate been like in terms of acceptance of internship/full-time applications?
I lan to work for Google
hello. I was removed on the meeting on my laptop that's why im using my phone to join this meeting.
can you send me the link on the GE information
To practice the prob/stat portion of interviews (and get an early sneak peak)
How would you assess your performance on product-related or behavioral interview questions where the general contours of a "correct" answer without interviewer feedback?
*where the general contours of a "correct" answer are very dependent on the particular interviewer
swe recruitment starts in the spring??
Maybe typo. SWE easily can start in August, and def by Sept it’s in full swing
^ which companies recruit in the spring?
that’s my bad i meant fall; thank you!
Check out this process; you might be ready for a DS job already
and on the job experience is really good :)
^ lists some of my favorite interview prep books. yes, super nerdy i know.
Is the book ACE THE DATA SCIENCE INTERVIEW available?
not yet; to get sneak previews sending it out via my email newsletter (http://eepurl.com/gaSjD5)
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.
as well as the new insta https://www.instagram.com/acedatascienceinterviews/ to get book previews and practice some problems
Agree with Elizabeth’s question!
For me, I stopped applying via online job portals. Go make kick-ass portfolio projects, and let recruiters and hiring managers directly know via cold email (https://www.nicksingh.com/posts/cold-email-tips-to-land-your-dream-job-with-examples)
