"It took me a year of researching whether or not going to a bootcamp would be seen as credible," said Susan Fung in the interview featured above. She wondered, "Am I going to be able to compete with someone who has a degree in this field?" 

What she came to find is this: all that matters, really and truly, is your ability to get the job done, no matter how you arrived at that skill set or knowledge base.

Fung is now a Senior Data Analyst at Liberty Mutual in Seattle. In the interview, hear her tell the story of how she ultimately selected our Seattle Data Science Bootcamp vs. academia, and how the bootcamp helped her prepare for her current role.
