How I Learned Data Analytics




[ad_1]

HOW I LEARNED DATA ANALYTICS // I’ve worked in analytics for 15 years now in a variety of different positions. Now I run my own consulting company in addition to teaching people about analytics skills and careers. Today I’m sharing how I learned data analytics (and business analytics).

Everyone’s learning path for analytics is a little bit different. My journey started with a lifelong interest in math and applying technical knowledge to practical problems.

Starting with my college degree, I’ll share my first steps for learning data analytics. Then we’ll get into on the job analytics training, soft skills, and networking.

Learning data analytics doesn’t end just because I’ve had multiple jobs in the field though. I constantly am learning new skills, tools, and techniques to make me a better analyst. Since I also work as a business analyst, I’ll talk about the skills I’ve built in that area as well.

    I also learnt a lot from trial and error, plus Google really is your best friend. Soft skills are also very important, nobody likes blank faces when you start talking about odds ratio and regression so make sure you keep it very audience friendly.

    Hi, Jen Thanks for your video. I used to be a credit analyst for the financial institutions, but I don’t like just doing the research. I want to make a difference. For example I can actually help the company or customers to find something they need through my skills. Can a business analytics to do that?

    Thanks for this great video, Jen. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and a certificate in computer programming from California State University Los Angeles. I'm currently watching youtube videos ranging from SQL, Python, Math and Statistics, Tableau, etc in an effort to be proficient in these necessary skills needed to be the data analyst. I am about to do sql, python and possibly r on codecademy. For the last few months, I brainstormed myself what kind of jobs I want to be in, and yes I thought about Business Analyst, Data Analyst. Hopefully I will be in either of these positions as soon as possible.

    Thanks for this great video Jen!

    For those of us on the cusp of starting a Data career, there seems to be a mountain of things to learn and master, and the Imposter Syndrome is real!

    These personal How I Did It videos are so useful, and are relatively rare compared to the other types of DA/DS resource videos on YouTube. Thanks again for the great content!

    It's a miracle you were able to get a job right out of college without having any technical skills or previous experience. Today, you would be lucky to even get an interview despite having 2-3 years experience with a programming language like SAS for an EL job

    Which certification would you say will be more beneficial in increasing my marketability for finding an entry-level job in the field of data analytics; Oracle Database Administrator Associate certification where I will be come much more proficient with SQL or the SAS Base Level programming certificate? I'd like to do both, but I am only being offered one of these courses for free.
