Hi everyone, I am a graduating senior from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor's in Data Science. I've been having a tough time finding Data Analyst/Science roles that consider new grads without full-time work exp (I have internship exp). Any advice?

- Yeah from my last internship. And I've been actively interviewing at East coast companies but want to find someplace in California
I'm trying to shoot for Microsoft, Google, twitch, etc but they only hire data scientists and analysts with prior job exp or a master's/PhD
- Yes they do
Data Science < University of California, Berkeley
- Well am
Not sure. In the end it all depends upon how much you know. It can be that many companies are considering with some exp but if u r decently good ppl won’t mind interviewing u. I hv always felt never do these pure data science programs.
Data science is just a combination of stats, ml and computer science.
Do major in comp science with courses in stats and heavy component of ML. that wud make u suited better for good ml career
