Having my final interview for a data scientist position soon. The job (other than coding) is to help them build their DS team. The interviewers will be the head of research and a VP, and the interview will be a “competency test”. How do I make myself sound more mature? Or any other tips? I’m ambitious and have a lot of ideas but I only have 2 YOE. Really want this job!!
