Hi. I have graduated in the UK in 2019. I have regretted not making the right choice of modules I studied and ended up without any relevant experience, hence not being able to get a job despite having applied to 100+ jobs… Now after having a big thought and seeking advice from the others, I decided to enroll courses learning Data Science with Python and Android Studios (Java/Kotlin). I’d like to ask:
Would the coursework/practice proposed from the course be suitable to put on my CV now? E.g In Android App course I came across Count Down Timer, so I completed the exercise of building an Egg Timer… would that be worth to put that on my CV?
I understand that doing projects is essential, but how should I get started? (e.g Do I need to create an original app by myself? Are there other ways?) (For Data Science I can join Kaggle competition to gain experience, but are there other places for me to get ‘better’ experience?)
I am sorry if this takes long to read, but I feel lost when I browse through the job openings, and the job requirements are quite intimidating!
