What are the steps to start a career in Data Science from Scratch?

Data is indeed in demand for today’s generation for all the right reasons. But whats the correct step to move ahead and start a journey remains a question of many people.

Starting from scratch in any particular field demands having an academic exposure for developing the right kind of basic skills needed to be a data scientist.

There are many courses available online as well as offline to move ahead with data science. However, doing a proper degree course is very beneficial as it has a value recognition which helps you get internships and job placements later.

  1. Do 1 bootcamp data science course without delving into too much depth.

  2. If you are already working somewhere, try and apply basic data analytics and data science in extra time / over the weekends and try to do a meaningful small project. If the company permits, try to move internally into the data science department (of course assuming if there’s such department). If your company doesn’t have any data driven projects or there’s no any data based department, try working on a project from online free datasets in a domain allied to your working job.

  3. If you are not working, pick any data science project from kaggle. And try to hunt for an internship where you will learn
