For graduates of computer science and related fields, there are plenty of job opportunities out there.
This is especially true in light of the steps we’ve been taking towards the future of work, where we’ll need a talented workforce skilled in understanding, working with and applying data.
But it’s not always obvious what route you should take once you’ve left college, or what it’s really like to work at one of the many companies that are hiring.
To help give you some insights into daily life as a data scientist, Siliconrepublic.com spoke to Juhi Shrivastava, a data analytics consultant at PwC.
Having typically focused more on projects in neural networks before starting with PwC, Shrivastava finished her DCU master’s degree hoping to dive deeper into data-driven work.

Instilling confidence and a feeling of being valued in employees is also crucial, and Shrivastava certainly believes that her ideas and perspectives are welcomed by her employer.
