I encountered a problem where the research participants were not responding to the surveys I had created. To overcome this, I reached out to other researchers who had used the same survey and asked for their input on how they had gotten more responses. I also changed the language of the survey to be more clear and concise.

I had a lot of trouble finding credible sources for my research project. I overcame this by carefully checking the sources I found to make sure they were reputable.

I encountered a problem in my last research project when I was trying to collect data from a particular website. The website was not providing the data that I needed, so I had to find another way to collect it. I was able to overcome this problem by using a different website that provided the data that I needed.

Hey all - I wanted some help assessing my chances at a consulting firm. Out of college, I worked with a consulting firm performing roles in analytics sales and delivery.

I worked with the CSuite on the delivery of that one. 1.5 years later I am working as an internal healthcare analytics consultant. Do you think my profile is okay enough to be an analytics consultant?

Recently I was staffed on a project which was being led by a white male who really just has this persona of being really “cool” and aware but in reality is very dismissive and honestly kind of borderline racist.
