I remember when I was starting out and I felt so overwhelmed that I sometimes felt like I lost sight of what was important. I wish that someone told me this. Here are the 4 things that I would recommend focusing your energy on if you’re planning to apply for UX Product Design jobs this year. Remember, these aren’t the only things you should know, but it’s key to know this if you’re interviewing. UX fundamentals are a must, and these are the things that I would focus on once you’ve covered that 🙂
Andrew didn’t enjoy the classes he was taking at university, he wasn’t learning anything valuable. He decided to take a leap of faith and was able to get a full-time salary job in digital marketing in 10 days. Find out how.
In this video I talk about the data science projects that helped me to land me one of my first data science positions. In almost every data science interview I have had, I have talked about at least one of these projects.
As you can see, all of these data science projects were on subjects interesting to me. While not all of them were successful, I was able to articulate their pitfalls and was able to clearly explain the possible next steps. I was also extremely focused on the outcome and who would be using the research.

We’ll go over education, experience, skills and finish up with a cohesive plan about the steps you need to take to start your journey as an entry-level Data Scientist. Of course, all the information is based on empirical research, statements by employers in data science, and a dash of our personal experience.
In previous videos on our channel, we’ve discussed the best degree for an aspiring data scientist. To recap: any form of post-graduate degree in a quantitative field gives you a pretty good chance of success, with Computer Science being the most-represented major.
Apart from an education, you also need some sort of experience credentials to your name. To understand the methodology we used, you can check out the article linked in the description. For reference, the results suggest that roughly 35% of current Data Scientists have already had a job in the same position. This means that the remaining 65% had a different occupation prior to that. Therefore, roughly 2 out of every 3 data scientists are on their first data scientist job in the field.
However, don’t expect to become a data scientist right after school. As little as 2% of all data scientists started off with no previous position on their resume. And even this number in itself sounded suspiciously *high* to us. Either way, to land even an entry-level position, you still need some previous experience elsewhere.

LinkedIn is releasing new tools in response to all aspects on the job hunt going virtual due to COVID-19, including the job interview itself.
LinkedIn is launching a test version of a new video introduction feature, as well as an AI-powered tool that gives feedback on peoples’ spoken word responses.
Here’s more about each of these new tools.
LinkedIn is testing a feature that’s designed to improve peoples’ ability to make a positive first impression to hiring managers.
“We’ve found that 65 percent of people believe that the impression you make online is just as important as the one you make in person, but it can be challenging to show your soft skills to potential employers when you’re not in the same room.”
LinkedIn’s new video introductions feature allows hiring manager to request an introduction as part of the hiring process.
The candidate can then respond either by recording an introduction or providing written copy.
“A carefully crafted response can help you stand out before the official interview process even begins,” the company notes.
LinkedIn is bringing AI-powered instant feedback to its interview preparation tools, which can help candidates prepare for common screening questions.
“When it comes to the interview, more than 50 percent of people say they lack confidence,” LinkedIn says.
To help candidates answer questions more confidently, the instant feedback tools will listen to peoples’ responses and analyze the speech content.
Users can record practice answers and submit them to the AI feedback tool to get an assessment on their answer delivery.
Feedback provided by the tool is aimed at helping people refine their interview and speaking skills.
For example, users will receive advice on pacing, how many times they use filler words, and sensitive phrases to avoid.
If they choose to, users can send their recorded responses to their LinkedIn connections to get some more personal feedback.
This feature is rolling out globally and can be accessed immediately after applying for jobs through LinkedIn.
LinkedIn’s Video Interview Tips
Included in LinkedIn’s announcement are three key tips for successful video interviews.
Cut the small talk
It’s important to establish a realtionship quickly in a video interview.
“You don’t have the luxury of small talk on a video call,” the company notes.
Use the first few minutes of a video call to establish a personal connection.
It may help to check the interviewer’s LinkedIn page for any background information or mutual connections that could give you something to talk about.
Keep it quiet
There’s a long list of potential interruptions when working from home – whether its kids, roommates, or family members who are also under stay at home orders.
If you’re sharing a space with other people, let them know you have an important interview scheduled so they don’t accidentally walk in or make an excessive amount of noise.
Prep your tech
An obvious but often overlooked tip is to make sure your technology works, and you know how to use it correctly before the interview.
If you just got a new webcam, for example, you may want to have a practice call with friends to learn how it works before going live with a potential employer.
