Looking for a entry-Level Job as Data Analyst

Hi everyone!

My name is Mayra Arango. I was an international student from Colombia at Seattle Pacific University. I recently completed my master's degree in Information Systems with an emphasis on Data Analytics. Also, I just finished an internship as a Data Operations intern at mParticle, where I learned about the entire lifecycle of data within an organization, from when it's within a system to when it's in a dashboard that others can use. I especially had the opportunity to gain experience supporting ETL processes, assisting in the task of getting the data ready to move it from one system to another. Besides creating dashboards to make information readable for others, I supported the creation of dashboards to test data, which allows monitoring the data quality. Also, I wrote Business Requirements Documents to describe the project's guidelines, and I documented and updated data about projects and team development sections on the confluence platform.

Currently, I'm Looking for a job to continue working on the data lifecycle by pulling in and cleaning data, making that available to the analyst community, and keep building my career. Because I am holding the OPT EDA, I just have four months and a half to find a Job. Thus, I would appreciate your support. Thank you in advance for any connections, advice, or opportunities you can offer. #OpenToWork

Hi @MayraArango - If you're having any challenges with job searching, here are a few job search best practices I'd consider:- Determine what support system you have in place to help you be effective throughout your job search -- Most people feel they have to go it alone and end up guessing where to spend their time versus leveraging a coach, mentor, peer or other tools and resources to be strategic- Most importantly is understanding how/where to spend your time wisely -- its not all about the online apps but networking is a critical component, as well as balancing some time for other key activities in job search (virtual events, thought leadership, research, reflection, etc)- Determine your accountability plan to make sure you're staying on top of your goals & staying organized- Reflect on how things are going on a weekly basis to iterate & improve your approach and thus your outcomes-Be sure not to approach the job in a transactional, check-the-box sort of way -- see networking and interviews as a mirror into the job you would land and an opportunity for two-way assessment of fit- Consider how many roles/industries you're applying to-- this may be a sign that you'd want to take a step back and pursue career exploration to clarify your ideal fit direction; career clarity will help make your search more efficient, targeted, and effective- Don't ignore your self care to ensure your mindset is staying resilient during your searchBTW, I'm Rachel, a Career Coach (iamwoken.com), and I offer a free initial career coaching call here-- calendly.com/woken/demo
