I’ve gotten a new role as a data analyst. Part of my TC is about $6k in annual training reimbursments.

I dont have much background beyond Udemy, some General Assembly courses, and stuff I picked up over the years in marketing.

Since I want to move into data science later, what certs if any, should I pursue?

    Leetcode premium subscription, go to conferences; certs are USELESS.

      So is Leetcode useful for non software engineers? Or I guess that’s what I’d be doing as a DS...?

      I don’t know much about Leetcode beyond it being incredibly popular. Is it that effective? And can it teach skills to a total novice?

      Pretty sure you'll get at least an algorithms round if you apply for DS positions at FANG, but I could be wrong.

      I know that DS driver code, but the topics covered in a CISSP would be relevant?
