Being able to present and explain data to people who do not understand technical terms
Keep the jargons hush-hush as normal people will not be able to fully understand what it means. Hence, you will need to simplify the terms or use another way to explain the data to them. As much as they are interested in your data, you will seem like you are speaking an entirely different language from them. Keep it simple and hopefully there will be no miscommunications or misunderstanding regarding the research or the data.
Good with computers
We all know one person who do not see the necessity to go to the computer repair technician his whole life because chances are he already got everything under control. If you are that person, this is the right career for you!
Being able to work with various programming languages
If you are to deal with computers, it is a given that you should be able to apply and use programming languages such as JAVA and C++. These are the languages that you will need to operate a computer programme, software and hardware. The more you know and is proficient at, the better it will be since research of higher levels will require more programming languages as they get more complex.
Data science is a combination of statistics and programming, a degree in related field such as Computer Science, Statistics and Information Technology will be useful . Besides that, if you further your studies to the next level such as Master’s Degree or a Doctorate will put you in a better demand as you possess in-depth knowledge and skills of a certain area.
The working hours of a Computer Scientist is regular working hours but you will be required to work overtime or even during a weekends to meet deadlines. Depending on your project or research, you will be required to sacrifice more time to complete them.
