I Have more sparetime now (Thanks Covid!) and I wanted to invest it in data skills related courses. I found one on data camp called "Data Skills for Business" and then was planning to continue with their "data analyst with Python" career track. What do you think of those two courses? Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻

I'm not familiar with those courses specifically but one piece of advice I have is to not pay money for bootcamps and courses since there's so much free material out there. I would say start with some introductory statistics if you're not already familiar, then move into applied stats/ML for business analytics. It's probably best to learn the big concepts before going too deep into a specific programming language (although if you do I'm 100% for python!)

Any specific courses/resources you recommend for the Stat intro and for ML for business analytics?

Statistics and data science micro masters from MIT. Good set of courses but lot of work.

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
