Data science is quite the trend right now. The pay is high and great opportunities abound. Its applications are numerous and many industries, tech or not, are beginning to see the importance of making sense of their data.

While it is a hot topic right now, here are 8 habits that will make you a better data scientist.

Know the Job Roles

Before you apply for any job, make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. There are many job roles/titles that exist and you need to be familiar with them and know just what you will be doing. It is also good to note that even with clearly defined roles, you can find yourself doing much more depending on the company you work for. So be ready.

Some of the job roles that exist include:

  • Data scientist
  • Data analyst
  • Business analyst
  • Machine learning engineer
  • Database administrator

… To name a few. While they all require the same basic skill set (Python, R, SQL) and knowledge with working with data, their requirements can differ. So before you apply for that job, check the job description and see if they align with your skill and ability.

Stress on skill because you’re going to need a lot of it.
