Hi All, I am currently a Data Analyst with 1 year of experience and pursuing a masters in Computer Science (expected to graduate 5/2023). I am looking to transition into an entry Data Scientist role (preferably remote or Philadelphia, PA). Can someone refer me or let me know who is hiring?

I can provide my resume if needed.

I hate to be discouraging, but I would recommend getting more experience as a DA before trying to move into DS. 1 YOE is going to be really though to sell without either a bunch of side projects, solid github, or nailing a coding assessment

I just got an opportunity as a Database Developer. Do you think this would be a bit more relevant than a data analyst position until I finish my masters in data science?
