Hi, so currently I am stuck in a situation where I currently accepted a job offer and had 5 other interviews which I never heard back from any yet. (I will have to say no if I hear back I guess and there was one I really was hoping to get but its going to be too late now). These were for data analyst positions for companies dealing with healthcare insurance etc. I just graduated with a masters in statistics two weeks ago, and I do know R, Python, MySQL pretty well, and I have done an internship in the past dealing with data analysis. I took the current offer since I do lack work experience and it involves working with the company's proprietary database doing back end work. Plus I was a bit fearful if I did not have any job for more then 6 months related to my field, my degree would just be useless. However after reading everywhere there is a demand for data scientists I did apply for these positions all around as well. For some reason I did not get interviews especially in the SF area. I've seen people with no work experience get these positions to those with several years of experience, and somewhere I fall between no experience and a lot of experience. My question is what should I do from here? I was thinking to work a year or so, and around 9 months in apply for DS jobs again. This time I hope that the 1 year of work experience I have will help me much more. I also hear that its all about networking, but to me is that just adding a bunch of people on LinkedIn and just talking about advice on applying. I guess I should ask what is the proper way to network on LinkedIn or some other websites? I appreciate any advice and thanks for helping out!
