Realising I have plateaued in my comfort zone at my previous job, I knew it was time to step out. My main goals for the next step in my career were to:

1) Learn
2) Grow (in both professional and personal sense)
3) Enjoy

One day, while scrolling through my Instagram page, I was very lucky to stumble across an ad for The Data School (I am so glad I didn’t ignore it!). I clicked and discovered their programme: four months of focused training provided by renowned coaches with tonnes of experience, opportunities to obtain qualifications in leading software systems, variety of work experience in top companies … and a great salary. Result:

1) Check
2) Check

But what about 3) I asked myself?

I decided to come to a Meet & Greet event at the Information Lab and talk to the current cohorts. Result:

Everybody was super friendly and helpful! I have never seen this much enthusiasm and passion for data and analysis. At this point, I was sure that The Data School had the full package I was looking for.

Now that I am in my second week, I can already say that I am learning and enjoying every day. It is too early to measure growth at this stage, but I am very excited about the future and sure it will come!
