Folding Data #17

An Interesting Read: Questions to Prep for Your Next Interview

If you’re part of this great labor shift, often called the “Great Resignation”, you might be looking for your next perfect opportunity. For some, perfect may mean a strong brand with a huge data team. For those who see themselves among scrappy and truth-seeking data teams, I'd recommend looking for the most active companies in the dbt and Locally Optimistic Slack groups. When it comes to interviewing, I've seen so many candidates fail not on their hard skills or values, but on "analytical thinking" interviews. To prep for those, I would recommend How to Measure Anything (if you are into the philosophy of analytics 🤓), Lean Analytics (a couple-hours read 🏎) and, finally, if you only have 5 minutes to prepare, click the button below 😉
