5 Data Science Skills that Pay
1. Mathematical concept
I am going to start with the concept of Math. As the demand for Data Scientists continues to increase, we see an increase in Bootcamps, Courses, etc. I did a BootCamp course in data science and when I landed my first commercial data science role – I was missing one thing. A good and deep understanding of the concept of Math and its vital role in the movement of data science.
A lot of BootCamp and online courses are short courses that fast-track you to land a job instead of going through the traditional route of University. However, this fast-track route results in you missing out on diving into important elements of data science such as statistical probability. If you have a better grasp and are able to apply math to your data science projects, you will ensure that it is done correctly and the results match the expectation.
