Data Analytics Starter Guide Part I

Data analysts have become the "entry-level" position for many trying to break into the data industry. With domain expertise and some statistics underpinnings, many can start building a lucrative data career. A nice breakdown of the differences between data analyst and data science is available here

 

If you're like me, entry-level positions aren't of interest: I don't wanna start over professionally, I know my worth so accepting a pay cut is a non-negotiable and I want to leverage new data skills to increase my income.  Real talk. 

Marrying new data skills to business objective, goals and/or outcomes is the best bet.
