The demand for data professionals continues to rise, and with the right skills and approach, you can break into the data field and kick-start your career in 2023.

Here is a 4-step road map to get started on your journey:

  1. Learn Excel, SQL, and Tableau
    These are the essential tools of the trade for data careers. Excel is the foundation for data management and analysis, SQL is the standard language for querying databases, and Tableau is a powerful data visualization tool.
    Start by mastering Excel, then move on to SQL, and finally, Tableau. Focus on these three and ignore the rest, at least for now.

  2. Build projects for each tool:
    Once you've learned the basics of each tool, it's time to put your skills into practice. Build projects for each tool and showcase your knowledge and capabilities. This will give you the hands-on experience you need to tackle real-world challenges and impress potential employers.

  3. Leave meaningful comments on LinkedIn:
    LinkedIn is an amazing platform for connecting with others in your field and showcasing your expertise. Make it a daily habit to leave a meaningful comment on someone else's post. This will help you engage with others in the community, build your network, and make you more visible to potential employers.

  4. Share your journey on social media:
    Finally, share your journey and progress on social media. Post about your projects, your learnings, and your goals. This will help you stay motivated and accountable, and also demonstrate your commitment to your career in data.

Don't overcomplicate your journey.

Follow these simple steps and you'll be well on your way to landing your first data job in 2023.

Good luck!
