Has anyone told you that you should get into data science? Have you heard it's a great career? In fact, data scientist is the best job in America according to Glassdoor's 2018 rankings.

That's great. But how do you get a career in data science? Once you land that first job, how do you find the right fit? How do you find the right company? And how do you get more deeply involved in the community?

I have brought two great guests, both highly successful data scientists, on the show today who have been thinking deeply about this. Jacqueline Nolis and Emily Robinson are here to give you real-world, actionable advice on getting into this rewarding career.
