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?

    If your internships are not resulting in job offers then you’re not doing interning right.

      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

      Good luck! Try not to overthink it. Get job, make money, grad degree, make more money, keep making more.

      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

    Don't settle, do grad school or switch to SWE. You need to actually have a transferable skillset to be valuable.

    Berkeley's DS bachelor's is considered one of the best programs of its kind. Entry level DS often isn't available in large quantities at top companies, so grinding your teeth at less "sexy" companies is better.

      I'm open to data analyst roles as well but even those require multiple YOE
