Our application process has recently changed and we have moved to an open application process. We have cohorts starting every February, June and October.
Interested in a specific cohort that works well for you? Apply for that one! Interested in the next cohort? Apply for that one!
In other words, we’re always accepting applications. Note that we still need to have deadlines for making offers for each cohort. Those are generally the end of December, the end of April and the end of August.
3. Find Your Data
Choose any data set you want! We mean it; from politics to sport, TV and popular culture. Tableau provide many data sets on their resources page. Still unsure of what data to use? Check out the 90+ datasets available on the Makeover Monday website. Our top tip is to find data that interests you.
4. Create Your Viz
Now the fun begins! Once you have your data set, you can begin creating your winning viz! Once it’s ready, publish it for all to see. Need help? Get in touch with any of the team or coaches! We’re more than happy to give advice and guidance.
5. Share It With Us
Once your work is live on Tableau Public and collecting love from the community, send it to us! Let our team of coaches help improve your viz. We review all vizzes sent our way and if you get it in early, we’ll provide feedback for you to make it even better. While you’re at it, send us a nice note too. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
6. The Interview
If we see passion, creativity and a flair for data, we’ll follow up with you personally. First, you’ll have a phone screen with Coach Andy. Following that, the best candidates will be invited in for an interview with the team. This is where the real fun begins!
