Posting for a friend that wants to do this data science bootcamp. Candidates have to interview to get in, and my friend is wondering what the interview looks like.

Does anybody know? Anybody gone through this?

    Sounds like the interview is just a way for the bootcamp to sound more legit than it actually is. I'm sure they'll let basically anyone in if they pay.

      Honestly, it all comes down to the interview so if you know the math and can work with certain constraints, I give you the thumbs up regardless of your background. I would always recommend formal education, publishing papers, presenting at conferences, etc

      bootcamp -> presenting at conferences is usually a long way to go...

      The problem for OP's friend though is quite possibly also being noticed by recruiters and getting an interview in the first place.

      My friend is trying to do a career switch from non-eng to DS. She is not worrying about recruiter attention yet. I think she is worrying about whether or not she will be accepted

      I see. Do you know her academic background and job experience (function/role)? For instance, from actuarial or quant analyst I think it will be easy.
