You have probably heard that data science is one of the hottest and most in-demand careers right now. But if you are like many established professionals, the job search process is almost unrecognizable compared to what you experienced at the start of your career. I successfully transitioned into data science late in my career. I wrote this book specifically to help other professionals like you make the same transition.
Here, I share everything I learned along my way into this rewarding field. This book will help established professionals push past feelings of self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and skepticism from others. This book simply has everything you need to know about the current job search process, including resume preparation, social media strategies, creating a professional portfolio, preparing for interviews, negotiating salary, and navigating your early years in the field. Overall, these pages contain tremendous advice specifically for established professionals on the topic of making a transition into or leveling up in data science. I have included dozens of resources that are simply not available anywhere else.- Dr. Adam Ross Nelson, JD, PhD
