Hello. I’m about 3/4 of the way through the Data Science Career Path, and I’m looking for some advice about getting freelance work.
I work full time in education, and I have a great deal of experience working with data through Excel, but this is my first foray into serious coding.
I have looked through Fiverr, Upwork and the other freelance sites, and it seems that the projects I have found are geared toward more experienced coders, particularly those who have expertise in packages that I am not familiar with.
If anyone has advice on an angle I could use to begin working on projects and further build the necessary expertise to be successful as a freelance data scientist, I’d greatly appreciate it. I am definitely willing to work without pay to build the necessary skills. Thank you for reading.
