Prepping For A Data Science Interview? Ask Yourself These Questions To Stand Out

It seems everyone and their grandmother wants to work in data science these days, and there are plenty of good reasons why that’s the case. First, the salaries are attractive: recent data from O’Reilly indicates the average compensation of a data scientist in the United States is $112,000 per year (here in Western Europe, the average is also relatively high at $57,000 per year).

Second, the work is challenging, rewarding and respected: By 2012, only a few years into the 21st century, Harvard Business Review had already declared data science this century’s “Sexiest Job.” Finally, career opportunities are plentiful, and only set to become more so, with IBM recently estimating that demand for data scientists will grow 28% by 2020.
