The Data Analyst bootcamp from Yandex By Practicum (a leading tech company) has provided me with the skills and analytical thinking necessary to work as a junior data analyst. A course at Practicum is not just another Udacity or Dataquest related program, it's much more. The platform provides an innovative bi-weekly sprint-like teaching approach (per course), insightful webinars (which can be tailored to student needs!), and the challenging and self-directed projects that are reviewed by professionals in the relevant field among other features.
Of special importance for me, has been the projects. These are very challenging projects that revolve around answering various business questions in a variety of fields. Whenever I work on these projects, I feel like I'm on the job! What's more, these projects get more complex throughout the program but there's always support and guidance from mentors if needed. This has been my highlight of the program as I'm confident now in my coding but more importantly, analytical thinking skills. You really can't go wrong by choosing this program!
