I had a ton of fun on the DATAcated show, talking with Kate about Analytics careers, specifically how aspiring data people can land their first role.

The topic was How to Get Your First Data Analyst Job. In case you missed it, you can check out the video below.

If you're in data or want to be, you probably know already know DATAcated and are likely one of the 175,000+ people who follow thought leader Kate Strachnyi. If somehow you're not familiar yet, you should check her out. She puts out a ton of great content and runs the awesome DATAcated conference. Her conferences are free to join too. Don't miss out!

Here are some of the things Kate and I talked about on the show...

  • Is being in Analytics still a good career decision?
  • Where should aspiring analysts start?
  • What do the various data career paths look like?
  • What are the tools people should be focusing on?
  • Is Excel an Analyst tool or not? (what do you think!?)
  • What's up with project portfolios? What does a good one look like?
  • and more!

Like I said, it was a lot of fun :)
