I realise that I cannot believe that it has already been four weeks in the Data School. Here are the top 3 tips on how to survive in the Data School.

  1. Be open-minded – Data analytics is a vast field, encompassing a wide range of techniques, tools, and applications. You may have some preconceived notions of what analytics is all about, but keep an open mind and be prepared to learn new things.
  2. Get to know your colleagues. Data analytics is a collaborative field, and you’ll likely be working in teams throughout your training.
  3. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask questions – whether it’s to clarify a concept or to seek advice on a task.

Overall, the four weeks have been a positive experience. It was challenging, but also rewarding, and I felt like I had taken an important step forward in my career. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn and grow in my new role and making a meaningful contribution to the team.

Our team will be having our first project next week. I’m looking forward to seeing what the upcoming week will bring.
