Video Series: Demystifying Data Science – Launching Your Data Science Career

By Emily Wilson • February 14, 2018

Back in September 2017, we hosted a free, live online conference featuring 12 straight hours of data science talks from more than 25 of the industry's best and brightest speakers. Demystifying Data Science was an awesome day of insights, advice, information, and interaction for aspiring data scientists. To share it all, we've broken the collection of recordings into a six-part blog series, of which this is the first.

Each post will cover a specific data science topic and will include talks related to that topic. Our first focus is on data science careers. How do you launch one? How do you prepare for the daunting data science interview? What's a first data science job really like? Below, we've included five 18-minute talks (with Q&As) that will collectively answer those questions and more.
