I have been working as a business intelligence engineer for 5 years. The job duties are more related with Microsoft BI stack tools, Tableau and other traditional database development like Oracle. There was a day, after I attended a data scientist seminar, I found my new career goal which is to become a data scientist. I started learning python, R, programming algorithm since one year ago and also learning some online courses that related with data science by self. I am also enrolling a master program in Analytics, hopefully to graduate in 2019. Recently I am trying to apply for a few data scientist roles. But none of them have any feedback which means my I am rejected at the resume step. Can anyone gives some suggestion? I think because my current work experience has nothing related with data science. Would you suggest I apply for a data scientist role as an new grads? Do I also need to included my previous experience? Any suggestion and advise is appreciated. Thank you!
