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...

How do you stay confident?

I know that having confidence is very important when you are interviewing with potential employers and for when you are interacting with your peers. However, I find that sometimes I lose confidence when something negative happens, such as being rejected from a company, or doing poorly on a...

What are the benefits of being a boy scout?

A few of my friends have recently gotten involved in scouting, and it seems like it takes up a lot of their time. Some of them tell me that they are doing it so they can put in on their college applications. Do colleges value boy scouts (or eagle scouts, for that matter)? Is it something that I...

What do you wear to an interview?

I have a few interviews coming up in the following two weeks, and I'm not entirely sure what I should wear to it. I was planning on wearing dress shirt, a tie, khakis, and dress shoes, but I'm afraid it might be too informal. I'm not sure if I will be afford a suit or where I would be able to...

What is a phone interview, and how do I prepare for it?

I'm a sophomore in college, and I recently went to a technical fair and talked to a lot of recruiters, and many of them have gotten back to me and said that they wanted to set up a phone interview with me. However, I have little experience in interviews and I'm not sure what I should expect...

How do you follow up with a recruiter?

I'm a sophomore in college, and I attended a career fair a few days ago. I talked to a lot of recruiters and many of them gave me their business cards so I could keep in touch in them or ask them any questions. I'm not sure how I would follow up with them, or what I should say, and I would love...

Should I take a gap year?

I am a junior in high school, and I will be applying to colleges in the following school year. I am a little lost on what I want to pursue in college, and I've always wanted to take a break from school to figure out what my dreams and aspirations are, as well as explore other opportunities and...

What should I do after high school?

I am a junior in high school, and I have a pretty decent GPA (3.7+). I am taking many advanced placement classes, and I'm doing well in them. I have been thinking about my future recently, since I will need to decide soon whether I want to go to college or not. What options other than going to...

What is a cover letter, and how do you write an effective one?

I am currently applying for internships online, and along with my resume, they often ask me to include a cover letter. I am not sure how to write one, or what it should be about. What do I include in the cover letter? Is there a general format to follow? #college #computer-software #internships...

Is it a good idea to work part-time in college?

I'm currently thinking about getting a part-time job or participating in a work-study while I'm at school. I could use the money to help pay for my textbooks and for my living expenses, but I'm concerned that my grades will suffer as a consequence. What was your experience working part-time...

After college, should I look for a job, or should I go to graduate school?

I am currently a second year student in college, and I am trying to plan out my future for the next few years (or have a brief outline of what I might want to do). Many of my upperclassmen friends told me that they decided to find a job after college, rather than go to graduate school, and I'm...
