I am constantly bombarded with sponsorship requests and unfortunately, I cannot honor all of them. I care about you guys too much. I didn't get into this whole "iCathryn" stuff because I wanted to become "famous". I got into it to help people get jobs because of the COVID-19 Unemployment Crisis and with things getting better, I still want to help you, by finding outstanding opportunities like this one.
Recently, a well-established company approached me with a program that I could not turn down. It was too perfect for you. I would have done it for free, but I am glad that they do compensate me -- it's not much, but it's a start! This is the life of an "influencer" when you start out. I'm not really one of those, but that's part of my role. This is how any career change works though when you are doing something completely different. I went from nearly 25 years in tech to now social media and career coaching.😄
Anyhow, Correlation One is the company I'm talking about and what they are offering right now is tremendous.
They teamed up with Harvard & MIT instructors and developed a Data Scientist Job Training AND Placement program that is...
...so well-respected that companies like Johnson & Johnson, Citadel, and Match are paying for the training, so that they can hire YOU, once you're done!
Because data science is one of the fastest growing jobs and it will remain this way for at least 10 years -- not just in technology, but in any field.
Average salary is $100,000, but that is low, IMHO. 🤯
I've worked with many data scientists, data engineers, and data analysts; and I've acted in the role of a data analyst in the past. I find data science a very fascinating field because meaningful data is so important.
As a former VP, I needed to make quick decisions all the time and to do that, I needed meaningful, trustworthy data, at any given time. Hence, the creation of the executive dashboard, usually through reporting tools like Power BI or Tableau. These data visualization and reporting tools are developed, used, and analyzed by Data Scientists, Engineers, and Analysts.
This is why Data Science is a lucrative and growing field.
You don't need to be good in math or in engineering. You just have to be LOGICAL and have COMMON SENSE.

How do you get into the DS4A Program?
Step #1. Online Application: Easy and straight forward! I even did it myself in 3 mins flat. It asks for a resume though so have it on hand.
Step #2. Online Skills Assessment: If you completed Step 1 above, you will receive a personalized link to take an online skills assessment, sometime in mid-January. Complete this assessment ASAP because moving to the final round is on a first come, first served basis.
Step #3. Short Online Interview: If you've passed step 2, you will be scheduled for a short online interview. They will ask you questions to determine:
1) PAST COMMITMENT: In the past, can you explain a time when you successfully completed a difficult task or project?
2) WORK ETHIC: When things are slow at work or you've finished your tasks, what do you do?
3) FUTURE WORK: How you will use your learning and social capital from the program? How will you be a steward in the data science community?
You can't get better than this deal. I've looked at the curriculum myself -- it is QUALITY. They will train you for free and you are practically guaranteed a job afterwards with companies like Johnson & Johnson, Match, and Citadel!
