    im a data scientist. 'pays very well' is subjective - to me, data a***ysts dont make much, but as a data scientist, i (22 y/o) make 180k in a low cost of living area. data a***ysts probably make like 50-65k first year. ask away.

    Data scientist is what I would want to be, it seems like something you could learn pretty quick and mostly is like a logic typa thing.

    Do you have a degree or just certifications?

    for data science, the most important thing is having a solid understanding of statistics, followed by a***ytical thinking & programming skills (predictive modeling - neural networks, regressions, tree-based algorithms, etc). as a data scientist, you're expected to have expert-level knowledge in data a***ytics concepts.

    data a***ytics requires statistical & programming knowledge but not to the depth you'll need for data science. (think t tests, basic stuff like means/median/mode, ANOVA, correlations, etc).

    regarding education, i dont know your background, but most employers for reputable companies (i'd say the majority, but im not sure) require you to have at least a masters for data science.

    i have a bachelors + masters from a top 15 university. that being said, i dont think education matters that much -- there are a lot of open-source datasets available online. just play around with those using python or R (i'd suggest python) and put it on your resume.

    What is the day to day of your job going to be like, you think?

    Haven't started yet, but its like doing consulting for different companies. They'll give me their data and I'll try to extract metrics they're looking for using SQL and Python. I think the job is below my skillset but job searching blows and my SQL knowledge is a little low so its a good learning opportunity

    yeah my job is easy af. i have to look through sheets in excel and look at numbers/graphs to interpret them. and some low level programming mostly sql but i also used some python. i slack off all day, the work doesnt take very much time for me to do i was a math major and dont really use any of my knowledge from college in the job tbh

    think i got kinda lucky with an easy one, im sure there are some entry level data a***yst jobs that are a lot more demanding
