How do I combine data science and marine bio in a career?

How do I combine data science and marine bio in a career? Right now I'm in college pursuing an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics with a focus in biology and data science but I was wondering what careers combine data science and marine biology because I know they work together but you can't find many examples of that. Also would there be any careers where I could work with the data but also be in the field and collecting it?

How can I land my first job as a data analyst?

How can I land my first job as a data analyst? I have been studying data analytics for a while now. And I have extensive experience in the banking and finance industry. but it just seems impossible for me to land my first job as a data analyst. I must have applied for more than 200 jobs by now, and I had my CV looked at by professionals whom I paid more than 100 dollars for and I update my cover letters according to different jobs. But I have only gotten one interview. I don't understand what's happening. Is it that hard to land your first job as a data analyst?? PS: Thank you everyone for your answers. I think what I lack is networking. I have the technical skills required for at least a junior data analyst, I've got SQL excel, tableau even Power Bi. I have many qualifications and certificates from reputable universities. For example, my certificate for Power Bi is with the University of Sydney. And I'm currently studying Master of Business Analytics at the University of Technology Sydney. I have participated in Virtual Internship with KPMG and I have Google Data Analytics certificate as well. But, I am not a big fan of networking to be honest, and I use to hate those events, it really felt like a slaughter market for me lol! I think I should change my mindset and be brave. Thanks guys!

What is the typical day in the life of an investigative journalist?

I am a sophomore in high school; I want to become an investigative journalist. I am currently interning at a non-profit where I report on topics such as poverty, poverty alleviation and other worldly issues, but I really want to get a feel for "digging" up stories that could possibly make a greater impact. What would this look like and how does this look like for you?

Trying to change careers

I have a degree in Neuroscience and a job history in the medical field (mostly administrative).

What is the difference between data science and machine learning?

I've been looking into data science careers, and I know that it is closely related with machine learning and big data. I'm confused as to what the difference between data science and machine learning is, and also how big data plays in a part in both fields. What exactly is data science and machine learning, and how are they related to each other (and how does big data tie into them)? Any help would be greatly appreciated. #data-analysis #data-science #computer-science #computer-software #big-data #machine-learning #data-visualization #data #data-mining

What are the best data science courses/nanodegrees I can take online?

I'm currently a third year computer science major, and I've recently discovered a passion for data science and machine learning. I've been trying to learn more about it, and I've found many online resources (Udacity's data analyst, machine learning nano degrees, Stanford's Intro to Machine Learning course taught by Andrew Ng, and various courses offered on Udemy). With all of these great resources, which one would be best for someone who is comfortable programming and wants to get more practical experience? Any advice would be very helpful (and even more so if you are a current data scientist!) and would be greatly appreciated! #machine-learning #data-analysis #data #big-data #computer-science #computer-software #data-science #data-mining #data-visualization

Is data analytics a hard field? If so, can you explain what it is as well as how it will evolve in the future?

I am hoping to major in Computer Science and some people have been telling me to look into data analytics. However I can't find that much information about it and don't quite understand the implications of it. I would also like to know my job outlook ( I will graduate from college in about 5 years). #computer-science #data-analysis
