Graduating in spring with bachelors in data science. I’ve had a Software development internship at NASA, data science at quicken loans. Just got into leetcoding so don’t feel qualified for good swe positions bc almost all test on ds&a.

Most DS jobs go to ppl with masters , and I think Data analyst isn’t technical enough for me. Right now I grind leetcode in my spare time, but career wise do you have any feedback.. thanks

    Data scientists typically go to people with advanced degrees, but Data Science programs as a whole are relatively new. I'm pretty sure you're the first cohort out of Cal that'll have a four year degree.

    I don't know that there's yet a bias against actual DS / Analytics undergrad majors. I wouldn't write yourself off yet. You don't have the EECS premium but even out of L&S Cal name carries weight in SF and the Valley.

    I'm an analyst, not a DS, but PM if you want to chat.

    How do you know your code is ‘leet’?
