According to the Harvard Business Review, “Data Scientist” is the sexiest job of the 21st century.
Reading this article, I thought, “is that really true?”.
Ok, admit it, you’ve asked yourself this same question. What’s so exciting about being a data scientist?
Yeah, we know, they get to do some fancy stuff with data, but… do data scientists love their careers or do the outsiders just believe they have it good?
Perhaps, your own career has stalled and you are interested in moving toward this trending career path.
The only way to answer this question, I thought, was to ask data scientists, “what do you love most about your job”.
So, I did just that.
After reaching out to dozens of data scientists on LinkedIn, I received some insightful responses.
