    The first step is the hardest (expand for more info)

    Skillshare is the Netflix of online courses. Subscribe for $15 per month and get access to 18,000+ courses (some courses are better than others).

    If you use my link, you'll get 2 months free meaning you can complete the whole data science course and cancel before your trial is over.

    Skillshare might not like that, but I'm just being honest with you. Here's my link:

    Lunch and dinner behind the desk,damn..Guys are you so greedy to earn money or what

  3. Hugo Valette says:

    JOMA TECH is not a DATA SCIENTIST, he’s a 1st STEP DATA ANALYST. DATA SCIENTIST IS THE BEST JOB !

  4. John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt says:

    Data Science sounds boring

  5. Christina Arocena says:

  6. Padawan Atodon says:

    I wish I got more involved in this stuff when I was younger!
    Good video, thanks 🙏

  7. K says:

    Is this guy typical of a data scientist or an outlier?

  8. AnRovik says:

    The answer is 42 but what is the question?

  9. Christopher Long says:

    Mind you, 100k in silicon valley is probably equivalent to 50k in most cities. (Coming from a data scientist currently living in pittsburgh )

  10. Pranjal Pathak says:

    I am a product manager but want to be a data scientist. And here get to hear this…

  11. Ryan Page says:

    So you still don't need a PhD, but most data scientist positions require a quantitative masters degree… I think a lot of people are confused in the comments.

  12. ZFlyingVLover says:

    machine learning is a fancy name for forecasting.

  13. ZFlyingVLover says:

    Note: $100k doesn't have the same buying power across the country. i.e. $100k in San francisco is $60k in Dallas tx. Make sure you take into account the cost of living where the job is located

  14. Won Woo Choi says:

    His work sounds more than data analyst. Also he is making that money because he is at Facebook and lives in san fran

  15. RITIK NAIR says:

    Where to learn for data science

  16. Pulling the Strings says:

    I'd be happy if I made 50k a year. I come from poverty and never even know what money feel is my hands.

  17. alex steve says:

    age 16 getting intrest in this field shall i move forward? can i able to get a job in good position in future..

  18. Noel says:

    Please do an interview of Business Analyst

  19. Sudhir Kudikala says:

    what are the hours like, 40 hr week, 60 hr week, 80 hr week ?

  20. ViiV Creations says:

    Just startup a good business and you can earn much more. We started a healthcare business in our local town and first year got over 250k from client payments alone. Healthcare is def #1 for sure.

  21. ccpwrlft says:

    Great video, super helpful

  22. Roushrsh says:

    Waterloo is Canada's MIT, so I kinda had to stop there. If you get in and complete a tech degree there you generally won't have to try too hard to get a job in the field. Internships help a lot more than university name, but I don't think he's a good example of this given his background. Waterloo gets a lot of internships for their students because their name is powerful and employers want to hire their students. It's a cycle of sorts.

  23. Andrew L says:

    Just to add to this video that the graduate in this video went to University of Waterloo, which is like the MIT of Canada.

  24. Arte Case says:

    Beautiful!

  25. David Argenal says:

    He said everything I already knew and expected… but it was nice hearing it from the horses mouth because there’s so many people who have tried to discourage me just because I don’t know python yet…. or because I don’t have a computer science degree… I have a business degree with a certificate in data analytics/modelling/administration.

  26. Ti Malice Met Dam says:

    Can someone with a BA in Economics get into Data Science? R and Statistics are core courses of that program.

  27. bundit says:

    What's up with the random snippets of web dev googling? What does it have to do with what Joma is talking about?

  28. Chase Blakeley says:

    6:46 is what i envision a data scientist actually "doing" 70% or greater of their work life. do data scientists have back problems?

  29. R L says:

    Is it fair to say that a data analyst is like a junior version of a data scientist?

  30. Karl Juhl says:

    Please redo this interview with a real data scientist, not a data analyst with an inflated ego

    This guy really said that the forecasting example was useless. If you think accurate forecasts of KPIs aren't extremely beneficial for corporations to have access to, just stop.

  31. Private says:

    Recruiter: So, what makes you qualified for the role of Data Scientist?

    Me: I have a degree in Family and Sexuality Studies.

  32. NewSpaceShipz says:
