So What Do Data Scientists Actually Do?

Worked as a “data scientist” — note the quotes — for three years of my life. Coming out of grad school with an obscure degree in a mix of financial math and computer science, it seemed like my best option, aside from heading into the finance world.

Due to a poor work ethic (and reasonable personal ethic), finance was out of the question. Plus, data science had been described as the “sexiest job of the 21st century.” Suffice it to say, we data scientists proudly upheld our reputation. I admit that I liked the “data scientist” title because it made me sound smart. I mean, data and scientist—that is definitely legit-sounding to peers and parents alike.
