To build a successful career in data science one must keep in mind three key points:-

  1. Identify the proper analytics course
  2. Learn and adapt the relevant Skills
  3. Identify the best data science institute.

Data Scientist is one who knows statistics and mathematics and knows proper techniques to apply the relevant tools. She/he must be able to successfully test hypothesis and must be able to visualize data. One more prerequisite of being a data scientist is having more than average programming knowledge. All these necessities can be met by choosing a proper analytics course that helps one build up a strong CV as a data analyst. Proper selection, of course, is the need of the hour and one must not be lazy in deciding that.

According to a survey, expertise in R or Python or SAS can bag a fresher a pay of 6-7 LPA. Expertise in all the three can bag a much better pay. The pay scale is better than most of the pay package in other domains. Therefore one must be proficient in any one or more of the relevant technology. To add up to the skill set, good knowledge of Excel and Database seems preferable.
