The race to become a data scientist doesn’t end at just mastering R or Python. In fact, it starts from there. A Data Scientist is majorly characterized by three skills namely decision making, analytical thinking & structured thinking. It is being said, if a person possess these three skills sets, rest everything can be taught in no time.

But what if, you don’t possess any of these or you are not sure if you really have them? I believe that can be learnt too. But, needs a special training. Keep calm, this training is available below for Free!

According to a recent trend, it has been observed that out of every 10 candidates appearing for the job of data scientist, only 1-2 candidates get the job. So, what about the rest? They get rejected! When asked recruiters about the reason of rejection, all of them stated one reason i.e. Lack of Structured Thinking.
