How can one prepare to get a job as a data scientist in 3 months?

To become a data scientist within 3 months, you should work on developing these basic skills —

  1. Programming languages like Python and R.
  2. Data collection, analysis and visualisation.
  3. Work on beginner level data science projects.
  4. Statistical analysis.
  5. Work on various case studies and projects that would help in a job.

Being a program coordinator, i would suggest you that if you have no knowledge about the data science field, get into a full — fledged academic course to get the maximum exposure or sign up for a crash course or diploma course in data science because having an academic background helps in forming a good foundation.
