Review of “Build a Career in Data Science” from a job seeker’s perspective

Since early March I’ve been actively applying for data science jobs in Seattle. I had just finished my data science bootcamp with Flatiron and I was very excited to get out there and find my dream job. Unfortunately, early March was also the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis in the US. The crisis has significantly dampened the job market for data scientists, but luckily not as badly as some other careers. However, now that I’m almost three months into my job search with no real opportunities presenting themselves for an early-career data scientist, I’m trying my best to stay positive while looking for ways to make sure that I’m putting my best foot forward.
Cue “Build a Career in Data Science” by Emily Robinson and Jacqueline Nolis! This book popped up on my LinkedIn timeline a couple months ago, but at the time I had a lot of optimism and didn’t think I needed to invest in a self-help book to keep me moving forward with my job search. However, as the job prospects stalled, I began seriously considering more resources to help me gain a competitive edge and I remembered this book. I actually had the pleasure of meeting Jacqueline a couple of years ago, just as I was starting to contemplate a career in data science. Jacqueline and her wife Heather (whom I attended high school with) are a data science dream team and I enjoyed a highly informative and encouraging afternoon coffee with them. Thus I decided to buy Jacqueline’s book, if nothing else but to support the Nolis family!

Is There An Upswing In Data Science Jobs in India

With the world starting to open amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of jobs available in data science sees an upward trend in India as we inch closer to providing vaccines for everyone.

The number of vacancies for data science jobs on the top job portals in India increased by 53% from when India eased the lockdown restrictions on June 8 to Nov 30, according to the data collated by AIMResearch. Although it is difficult to ascertain the exact number of open jobs, the top job portals in India, Naukri, LinkedIn, and MonsterIndia together showed almost 125,000 vacancies on Nov 30.

However, the pandemic did result in a decrease in the number of open data science jobs at the start as vacancies reduced from 101,562 from Dec 17 last year to 81,704 on June 8. Despite this decrease, India’s share of open data science jobs in the world increased from 7.2% in January to 9.8% in August.
