I am finishing up my masters in Predictive Analytics at Northwestern which the curriculum has been my only experience in modeling data. All of my data related professional experience has been within the database layer as well as data visualization which I have a great passion for.
I feel that I am at a vital stage in my career as I want to start down the data science path but the experience required in the field is quite extensive.
I would like to ask for any recommendations that anyone may have. How would you suggest someone start in data science with a master degree but minimal professional experience?
Thank you so much for your time!
