Job Skills Internships in Data Science

  1. Dec 30, 2017 #1

    I want to switch careers from EE to data science. I am taking courses in the field, reading books, and will do some online projects. Do I need to take internships on top of that? If yes, how willing are the companies to take interns? Would they respond if I emailed them without advertising that they are taking interns?

    I don't know whether you "need" to get one, but it would really help and you should try.

    I'm familiar with a handful of data science departments at different companies and they all take interns. It seems widespread in the industry to me; others may have a wider view.
