Getting Started at Dataquest
In 2021, Gorelova was working as a hostess in a restaurant, and she decided to explore data science.

With a passion for data visualization, she can transform complex datasets into understandable dashboards that can inform important company decisions. She chose the Data Science path at Dataquest to gain a strong foundation in fundamental concepts and tools of data science, as well as practical skills that she could apply to real-world problems.

Gorelova credits Dataquest for a strong skill set that helped her stand out as a candidate for her new Performance Data Analyst position: “The combination of technical skills and practical experience gained from DQ gave me a great advantage. I learned how to use analytical skills to uncover insights about customer preferences and trends, optimize pricing and inventory, and improve the overall performance of the company.”
