Can I become a data scientist with no experience?

While a person technically become a data scientist without any prior experience in a relevant field; but it would be extremely difficult and challenging specifically taking into consideration the immense competition in this field. Therefore, candidates with an undergraduate degree in the field of mathematics, statistics or computer science could be a good starting point.

Other than that, a data scientist should ideally possess certain business know-how as well so as to provide relevant solutions & insights to business – this is also a difficult trait to possess without prior relevant experience.
