@becausealice2 ...Oh, but this doesn't sound very good
YOU WILL BE ONE OF THE FOUNDING MEMBERS OF OUR ANALYST DEPARTMENT FOR OUR LEAGUE OF LEGENDS PROGRAM.
because their qualifications are
MINIMUM BA OR BS EQUIVALENT IN DATA SCIENCE, COMPUTER SCIENCE, STATISTICS, OR RELATED FIELDS OF STUDY.
So I'm not sure if they have this "low bar" because they want to be inclusive of all backgrounds, or they want to exploit an analyst to do way more data analysis than they are actually qualified for. I hope it is the former.
And no offense on noting the job qualifications having a "low bar" as having a BA/BS. I just mean that a founding member of an analyst department, you will be required/held to create a culture and have intuition on data analysis. So I'd expect someone to have experience managing teams and projects. I hope that makes sense. I just hope they have other more skilled analysts around.
I'm leaning a lot of my assessment based on articles similar to this https://towardsdatascience.com/why-so-many-data-scientists-are-leaving-their-jobs-a1f0329d7ea4
I think they set the bar low because I'm not convinced they know how to hire a data scientist. I know the title is analyst, but what they are asking is beyond the work of "analyst" lol.
My thoughts exactly.
@becausealice2 mmm interesting. Good that you did your research on them!
I don't think it hurts to reach out and have a conversation about it. At the least, you can find out exactly what kinds of projects they need help with. And you could reach out to one of the peeps you follow and have an informa conversation with them. But easier said than done and also me as an uninvested person in this i.e. I'm not the one applying to the job.
