3 Reasons You Should NOT Become a Data Scientist


[ad_1]

In this video I speak about 3 causes that you just should not turn into a data scientist. There are loads of circumstances the place data science might make sense for you. Below are three conditions the place data science will not be a good match for you.

#datascience
1) You are in it for the cash
2) You don’t love autonomy
3) You are uncomfortable with collaboration

Data science is an superior area, but it surely is not for everybody. You mustn’t turn into a data scientist if the three pillars above are related to you!

    I think the reason why I would like to get into Data Science is just the outright versatility it can offer in many sectors such as finance,healthcare,IT etc. The whole concept of breaking down and finding solutions is interesting. I started to doing a Python course and I'm really enjoying the coding but I just wanted to ask I come from a Finance background with some banking experience. Can you please give me some tips on what I should do exactly? Thanks!

    I was thinking of taking data science because it involved coding. But now I'm not so sure about it.

    Maths are haunting my life! I m frustrated . I don't understand it, I have 0 knowledge, not even the basics… I am doomed in this modern world. I hate my conventional job. I wanna work remotely in the peaceful atmosphere of my home or outdoors.

    I like the fact that you made it clear that these aren't inherent skills or character sets, but that they can be learnt!! 🙂

    I would work more on collaboration for personal projects both in Ds and web development

    I think data science is the first career that I've considered where I didn't look up the salary before looking into it more lol

    Money – Check
    Need for Autonomy – Check
    Creativity – Check
    Uncomfortable with Collaboration – Failed (I personally struggle in driving others to deliver)

    These are in-sights with great clarity. Thanks a lot.
    I got 2/3 in my favour. The 3rd is something we can learn.

    I just graduated with my Bachelors and always thought data science was interesting and that it was the path I was going to aim towards. But recently with the low amount of entry level DS positions available and the overwhelming amount of material to know, I have been debating on changing career paths. I definitely underestimated the level of knowledge and expertise you need in order to be in this field. Watching this video has helped me realize that maybe it isn't the right fit for me. I am personally uncomfortable with autonomy mainly because I haven't had any prior work experience. I definitely have a lot to consider. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    I was inspired to be a data scientist primarily because of my dad. He is a doctor and currently practices medicine, but builds models for research papers in the medical field.

    Great video. As a woman, I experience pushback even from family members for just being interested in science, let alone math & data. I just decided after a year that THIS is what I want to do…. switching from Agriculture. I told a family member who does something slightly similar to Data Science… and he literally asked me if I am sure it is what I want to do because it is a lot of numbers.

    I am excited about switching majors and going for this‼

    Due to covid the aus government is sponsoring retraining and data analytics stood out for me. I come from an arts/business major and I'm an English Second Language Teacher. All the work has dried up and I was transitioning to work in film but with restrictions that won't be possible anymore. So I've decided to retrain. I dont know if data science/analytics is right for me because I havent tried it, however I did do well in stats at uni and maths in school. I figure ill give it a go and if i dont like it then what the hell, i only spent $2500 for 6 months of which i wouldn't have worked anyway. Thoughts ? Just researching this has kept me up at night

    I started reading about stat 2-3yrs back, also learnt indepth theory for linear, logistic regression etc, did very basic kaggle project. I work in bank. 6 months back i got my first real life banking modelling project. Dara quality is horribly bad. I have seen rather than the process its good engineered feature that improves the model. But what demotivates me after much thought also, my features don't improve model. Also i am not good at finding good insights. They are average. Any tips?

    I'll be graduating with a degree in electrical and electronics engineering and I'm looking to do a masters in Data science and business analytics. Would this be a good combo?

    Well, I find this motivating <3. Even if I lack the confidence to collab, I can learn that on my way.

    Also I am a Full Time commerce student, I don't do Physical science. Can I still pursue a bcom applied Mathematics degree without knowledge of Physical science, or should I perhaps just go with statistical learning(bcom mathematical sciences)?

    I am very Interested in Data Science, Not for money, instead I never even thought of That. I'd say I am good at Maths, creative with good presentation skills, and yes I do love helping and working together with others to solve problems, but I'm not good with computers. Can I learn to do that? Am I taking a risk?

    Thanks for such great content in a simple, crisp, precise package. I've only watched like 2-3 videos of your channel.
    It's praiseworthy how you deliver precise content without much of visualization in such a simple, no-nonsense manner.
    Subscribed and liked for the QUALITY! 🙂
    I hope you keep getting better and go on more adventurous rides and return without injuries! 😛
