We have repeat Champions this week! Here they are: :tada:

Writer:

@eboigbeik has kicked off the July Writers Contest by publishing Unconventional Strategies to Land Your Next Job in The Data Industry.

In this article, they share a step-by-step guide to finding a job by cold emailing companies instead of waiting for a recruiter to discover your resume on a job portal.

Guided Project sharer:

  • @nathalia.pignaton for their project on Finding Heavy Traffic Indicators on the westbound of I-94.

    You should check it out because of its interesting observations, emphasis on the most important points, and a fresh look on the reasons of the traffic volume anomalies throughout the year.

  • @vadim.maklakov shared another great project, this time on Predicting Car Prices .

    It stands out because Vadim shows his eye for detail and curiosity for the data by going far deeper in data exploration than required in the instructions, and using many additional resources!
