Jump-Start Your Data Science Career with Personalized Career Coaching from Dataquest


The first step in any successful data science career is acquiring the technical skills you need to perform the role. But of course, getting a job requires more than just having those skills — you have to get a resume past application screeners by demonstrating your skills, nail technical and culture interviews, and navigate the tricky waters of salary negotiation before you actually find yourself employed at the job you want.

Dataquest has an extensive Career Guide that’s designed to help you navigate the data analyst and data scientist job application process.

But no two job applications, and no two job applicants, are the same. Getting some one-on-one professional help with your application can make it easier to reach your personal career goals. That’s why Dataquest includes one-on-one career counseling with a data science careers specialist as part of our Premium subscription package.

Our career coaching even includes help with offer negotiations, which means that most of the time, it literally pays for itself… and then some! In her past roles working with both Data Science and Web Development students, Sabrina has often been able to help students increase their original salary offers by US$5,000/yr.
