Welcome back! Something I see talked about in a lot of different forums is the transition from Data Analyst to Data Scientist.

Welcome back! Let’s talk about which programming languages tend to have the highest salaries.

Welcome back! When I first came out of college a few years ago I did what i’m pretty sure everyone else does, mass apply to a bunch of jobs. Now, I think this is one of the smartest things you can do (in my opinion), but if you’re lucky enough to break through and get an interview with a company, please do not do this.
