If you enjoy the classes, consider a possible graduate degree in data science. Excellent programs include UC Berkeley, NYU, and Northwestern.
• Get Experience. Download public data sets from sites such as Kaggle and test your skills against the open market. You can also see what kinds of projects you can get exposure to where you work, where you can get access to data and test your skills.
• Network. Talk with some actual data scientists. Listen to what their day-to-day life is like and ask yourself if that sounds exciting or worth the effort to change your career. Because demand is so high, just even networking with data scientists might open doors for employment opportunities as they are asked all the time about who they know that can possibly fill a role.
