Course Report Interviews Metis Career Advisor: How to Ace The Data Science Job Interview
By Emily Wilson • March 20, 2018
Course Report recently interviewed Metis Sr. Career Advisor Andrew Savage, seeking his input on how to ace the notoriously strenuous data science interview. They wanted to know: What actually happens in a data science job interview? How can you prepare and what should you expect?
He provides those answers and more, giving examples of interview questions you might get asked and advise on how to conduct yourself if you're suddenly stumped. (For example, it's "totally fine" to say 'I don't know,' but it's important to be strategic about your approach when doing so.)
Andrew also goes into detail regarding the soft skills interviewers are often looking for (like communication, personability, and more), and provides a list of online resources that are sure to help you ace the interview.
You can take in Andrew's expertise via Course Report video or transcribed (and really well-organized!) on the Course Report blog.
Andrew and the rest of our Careers Team provide comprehensive career services for all students of our 12-week Data Science Bootcamps. Read about those services here.
