Once you’ve earned the necessary education and training, you can start applying to roles that fit your skill level. If you’re already in IT, you can reach out to your network to find open positions or potential job opportunities.
You’ll want to figure out if the job openings in your desired industry and field require a higher education degree, or if certifications and boot camps are enough to satisfy a hiring manager.

From there, you can map out a strategy to becoming a data scientist armed with the education, skills and experience to get the job.
