How to find a data science mentor
Having a good mentor can be a major catalyst. A mentor can help you sort the signal from the noise—the hype from reality. They can reduce the information asymmetry inherent in the job market, guide you towards the best resources and tools, and help you sell yourself to hiring managers. Whereas a data science course meant for mass consumption must have broad appeal, a mentor can give you advice specific to the role and domain you are aiming for.
