I think good news should always be shared in a motivational purpose! Yesterday, after MONTHS of self-learning and rejections, I have finally got my first “that is impressive” at an interview. Things are not completely done but I should become in a few weeks a “customer success strategist” that involves at 40% of data analysis (SQL, Excel and Tableau) in the job description. The job is a tribrid between SEA Manager/Account Manager and Data Analyst. Basically, I’ll have for mission to help retain current customers by analysing their data, their industry data, make them tell a story by using the insights and give the customers advice to improve their online campaigns.
It is not exactly a Data Scientist position but it is a first step! I spent months applying for jobs as Junior Data Analyst only to get rejection emails because I did not have the right diploma (I come from a sales and marketing background). Good thing about this job, I’ll work directly with a data scientist to learn a maximum in the hopes of become a full data analyst within the company by next year!
Keep faith and do not hesitate into related to data jobs before landing to what you truly aspire.
That’s amazing! Congratulations!
Congratulations for your new role
