|Before Springboard:||Scientist, Sandia National Laboratories|
Working with my mentor was like friends or colleagues discussing work progress.
Research scientist in a national lab focusing on analytical chemistry. My work was related to data/spectrum analysis, and I wanted to learn data science and interview skills to broaden my career path.
Six month money-back guarantee. Also, I could pay by month. If I could finish the course before six months, I could end up paying much less money.
He gave me suggestions as well as challenges during my project. Also, the help from career coaches benefited me a lot.
Wonderful. Especially collaborating with my mentor, who led me through starting projects into deploying, which is extremely helpful during the interview process.

My challenge was machine learning. I had to read through other materials in addition to course materials.
Machine learning application in early cancer detection: I chose this project because 1) it relates to my chemistry background and 2) it is an eye-catching topic, which earns me lots of interview opportunities. I built a web app where you could tell the probability of having cancer by uploading a spectra of blood samples.
I am a business intelligence analyst at Indeed.
Work closely with your mentor. Build a readily deployable app using machine learning models to solve interesting problems that could make high impact. Present your work in front of experts and receive comments and critiques. Be social and join local data science network.
I’m grateful that Springboard was the beginning of my data science journey.
