You want to talk about demoralizing— try looking at current jobs for entry level data positions. How can you even compete with this number of applicants? It’s both nationwide and for in person jobs as well from what I’ve seen.

Hiring manager here. 99% of them are no-go candidates (either due to the relocation that they’ll request or due to the weak tech stack). Yeah, entry roles are always more competitive than mid/senior roles. But if you’re OK with SQL, some visualization tools (Tableau), know how to do basic stuff in Excel and have 1-2 small pet projects to show - you can get pretty much any offer you’d want. Candidates are generally poorly prepared and don’t do their homework (even CVs are often garbage). Don’t be intimidated by the absolute numbers. You can crush them easily with a couple of weeks of prep. Seriously. Go get ‘em, tiger!


I can't explain that high applicant number, because in general it is definitely a candidate's market out there - quite hard to hire right now. Maybe that data analyst, scientist, etc are just outlier job titles because so many people want to move to those atm (higher paying career track)


I know it's intimidating, but don't let it deter you from applying. Like SDS said, a significant portion of those other applicants will be eliminated right off the bat. Just keep plugging and you'll find something.


Think about how stupid the average person is. Now remember that half of them are even dumber. You'll be ok


wowwwww....the market is truly crazy rn

Honestly, we really need better titles for Data Analyst roles. There's SQL Extractors, Data Interpreters, Data Modelers, etc. Data Analyst is such an outdated term in 2022, and it needs a refresh like so many other titles to align more with what the function of the very specific role is. Some analysts are just query goons, extracting data, and then they hand it off to others to analyze and interpret. Others model it. Sometimes someone does all three, make them an Insights Architect, or some nonsense like that.

All 3 would be a data scientist or a data architect. Data engineer focuses on the SQL. Data analyst focuses on the analysis and interpretation. There are clear, well defined terms. It's just that the people who need to know them (recruiters, managers) don't.

Still not seeing location in the post window when turning it off.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...
