I am a Navy veteran with healthcare background,
Masters degree in health informatics with
concentration in data science and 3 years of experience
in analytical field (mainly SQL, R, Python, Tableau)
including my 8 months internship in VA hospital as
data science intern. I am all over the place applying
for data analytics jobs. I am not sure if it’s my military
background that’s keeping me from finding a job or the
market is just too cold and harsh right now in bay area.
I would really appreciate any referrals from you
guys. Things haven’t panned out quite the way
I had imagined. Having a hard time making ends meet.
Any effort to keep me afloat will be highly appreciated.
May god bless you all!
They give preference to veterans. To the point where very underqualified people get selected for a job cause they were a veteran (we had an aircraft mechanic doing technical writing, that did not go well). But that's a story for another day.
