I am Dharmesh Manglani student of 3rd year Mechanical engineering at IIT Roorkee. Although my branch is Mechanical, I am not interested in pursuing my professional career in core. Watching Analytics as a highly trending field I started working towards it from this January. Analytics Vidhya really helped me a ton as a complete guide for career and learning path.I am really grateful to @kunal sir for all that guidance. I learnt basic python, R from Analytics edge course,basic stats,participated in a Kaggle competition and reading a book on Data science for business.
Now the thing is I am very excited and passionate to start my professional career as Data Analyst/Scientist. But here in our campus there are very less companies recruiting freshers as Data Analyst/Scientist and being a six pointer guy it may be difficult to get the dream job in dream company.So basically my question is do the Analytics firms recruit fresher outside the campus? What are their basic pre-requisite skills and qualifications to heir a fresher as an Analyst/Data scientist? Do CGPA matters a lot for such jobs?
