13: Do Projects, Bootcamps, and More - Ask Avery - May 18, 2021
This is probably my favorite Ask Avery show of all time, at least of the last few months. We had some folks show up live to ask questions. Ricardo and Quincy asked awesome questions and it was so fun to talk to them face to face. We talked about how to stand out in getting a job in data with Ricardo. And Quincy asked about my opinion on bootcamps. We then took two written questions from Robert and Adnan. They asked about a structured plan for data science as well as how to know if you like data science. I’m going to be ending the giveaway for the podcast rate and review. Please if you have one second and are on apple podcasts, please give us a review as it really helps the show.

12: Engineering -> Data Science with Thom Ives
The first official interview of the data career podcast! It was right after out launch party for the podcast and it was with the awesome. Thom Ives was our guest. Be sure to follow him on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomives/. Total stud. Love the guy. Seriously so nice. We talked about his long career in data and his transition from engineering to data science.  That is the way to become a data scientist, you do data science before the role is ever assigned you. Don’t forget that. I do want to also apologize for my tech issues on this episode. I somehow unplugged my nice mic for my audio, and my headphones weren’t working to listen to Thom’s. That being said this audio is NOT the best. I am super sorry. There's also a giveaway going on for the pod, all you need to do is rate and review on Apple Podcasts.  Want to leave a question for the Ask Avery Show?

1: Welcome To The Data Career Podcast
Welcome to the Data Career Podcast. This podcast is for you! It is to help you, inspire you, motivate you, educate you, entertain you. It is all about YOU. And then it’s all about data. How to use it. Where to get it. What to do with it. Ect. Whether you’re trying to get into data, or you’re already there and want to learn more, or if you just want to connect to the community more. This podcast is for you.  Episodes will contain a few formats, and may evolve over time. To start now, there will be clips from the Ask Avery Show. If you haven’t heard about this, this is a weekly “Ask Me Anything” show I do where people can ask me anything they want. It can be data related, career related, LinkedIn related, whatever! Everything is fair game and I try to be as honest, helpful, and transparent as possible.  Next, there will be interviews I do with other data professionals telling their story on how they broke into data and how they got started. I’m so excited for these! I’m really looking forward to them. Finally there will be random episodes of me just talking about something I’m passionate about or something that could help you in your career.  I’m going to try to release episodes frequently as I know I appreciate when podcasts come out often. That’s just more fun. I’m not going to do too many edits, just keep things low tech, raw, and fast. It’s going to be a great podcast and I think you’re really going to enjoy it. See you soon in future episodes!
