Recently, Glassdoor released its list of top ten jobs and, among those top ten jobs, were positions that you would expect -- dentist, physician assistant, doctor -- but there were also a plethora of jobs in the IT industry that made that list. And, that includes the number one job: Data Scientist.
I know what you’re thinking, “what is a data scientist and how do I become one?” Well, a data scientist is someone who extracts, analyzes, and interprets data. To get started in this field you need at least a bachelor's degree in a related field (most often computer sciences) and you need industry-relevant experience. To stand out among your peers, industry certifications are also a huge perk!
CASY & MSCCN have partnered with companies like IBM, St. Michaels Learning Academy, and Fortinet to bring IT-related industry training and certifications to our military veterans and spouses at no cost! If you are interested in learning more about how these certifications could impact your career, where they are offered, and how to enroll, check out this quick video on the process.
