2 years since I've been here in the US, 1000+ applications submitted, interviewed with 3 companies so far; Google, Juul Labs and Intuit. Scored a full-time offer from a F500 company where I was an intern this Spring semester. Super low salary, extra long working hours with no additional pay, no learning curve whatsoever.

Any help/tips from you guys would be greatly appreciated. Will give out Pizzas in return :)

    May have to start at the bottom.

    Analytics is super saturated right now.

      Absolutely! I'm perfectly fine with getting an entry-level position in Analytics, as long as the pay is decent and I get to learn new stuff :)

      Are you sure?

      It sounds like you can’t get the eye of recruiters and HMs. 1000+ applications? Something you’re doing, or not doing, is unattractive to them.

      What I’m saying is it might mean getting a couple years experience at the place that’s willing you give you a job. That’s the place that you had an internship at.

      Just saying, beggars can’t be choosers.

      If you’re having that much issue I’d seek other opinions on how you’re presenting yourself.

      Well, I would need sponsorship in the future, and with the current uncertainty around immigration policies, I can kinda understand if my resume is not being picked up.

      The resume template I'm using is university approved and I'm constantly adding certifications to my portfolio to hopefully compensate for my lack of experience.

      I'd love it if you take a look at my resume and maybe critique it? I'm looking for any form of help :)

    Analytics jobs usually require a lot of domain experience. Companies usually don’t hire fresh graduates. Most of the JDs state 2+ YOE. Don’t aim too high like prestigious tech companies, just start somewhere and get some experience. Then after 1-2 years you can jump anywhere.

      That would've been an ideal scenario, but I'd actually need sponsorship ASAP to continue working in the US, and I don't have a lot of time to gain experience and switch.

      I'm hoping to get a job where I can actually learn something new and they're willing to sponsor :)

      You should have stem opt no? Anyways, my point is company prestige is not as important at this stage. Just focus on finding a company that’s open to sponsor and can get you exposure to analytics. I came from the same path so I feel you. Good luck kid

      I'm actually waiting for my post-completion OPT rn. I'd love to get a job where I can actually learn more about Analytics, regardless of what company I work for. My current company only uses Tableau for analysis purposes, so there's nothing new to learn here.

      But yeah I'm looking anywhere and everywhere for anyone willing to hire and sponsor me :) thank you so so much for the tip!
