What are some of the skills a Data Scientist should have?
To stand out as a superb data scientist candidate, you’ll want to show that in addition to stellar quantitative skills, you also have great communication skills. Can you synthesize data points, to present and use them in a meaningful way?
Another way to stand out as a data science candidate is to demonstrate interest or experience for data science within the specific industry you’re most interested in. For example - if you’re interested in working with cryptocurrency companies to develop the latest blockchain technologies, you can demonstrate knowledge in how to use data to map out how to adjust the pricing of products according to seasonality or market shifts. Or if you’re interested in higher education, you can share what attracted you to the field - was it the opportunity to build products that change the way students learn, or the opportunity to help teachers understand where their students may be struggling?
