Data Science Interview Prep
Confidently take on the tech interview
About this Course
Data science job interviews can be daunting. Technical interviewers often ask you to design an experiment or model. You may need to solve problems using Python and SQL. You will likely need to show how you connect data skills to business decisions and strategy.
In this course, you'll review the common questions asked in data science, data analyst, and machine learning interviews. You'll learn how to answer machine learning questions about predictions, underfitting and overfitting. You'll walk through typical data analyst questions about statistics and probability. Then, you'll dive deeper into the data structures and algorithms you need to know. You'll also learn tips for answering questions like, "Tell me about one of your recent projects." At the end of the course, you'll have a chance to practice what you've learned. You'll receive a link for unlimited mock interviews on Pramp. Practice the skills you need to show up for your data science interview with confidence!
