I've been participating in the ADAPT Program offered by Alteryx since May 2020. Ever since I lost my previous job due to COVID-19, I've made it my goal to reinvent myself. Since then, I've become Core Certified, Advanced Certified, and I completed the Udacity Predictive Analytics for Business Course. Now, I'm at the tail end of the program. My license officially ends the beginning of November, which is a little more than a month from now. I would like to know from you; With the time I have left of my Alteryx license, what would be the best use of my time? Obviously, my goal at the end of all this would be to make a career out of Data Analytics or Analysis. I've been learning more about Tableau a bit recently, and I'm curious about using Python with Alteryx. But I would like to hear from you what would be the most useful thing I can do next. Whether it's a certain project or another course. I'm still doing the Weekly Challenges as well to learn more about Macros, Analytic Apps, Spatial tools, etc. Anyway, thank you for reading. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
@Nicholas_Norton getting Advanced Certified is HUGE! The global economy is in a bit of a strange situation at the moment, but you have a skill set that can operate virtually which may be exactly what a company is looking for. As @ImadZidan mentioned above I would definitely check some of the online job postings and specifically search for Alteryx in the description. https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/search/?keywords=alteryx - LinkedIn for example
Business Intelligence roles are definitely in demand, so I would start putting your feelers out there and applying to jobs. If someone gives you access to a variety of data sources and asks you questions about them, do you feel confident in your ability to extract insights and tell the story behind the data? If you do, you are in a great spot! If not, I would practice those skills if your goal is to work in data analytics.
@ImadZidan Thank you. It's reassuring to hear that my efforts haven't been in vain. I've already applied to a couple places, but I guess now is as good of a time as any to kick it up a notch. I appreciate the advice!
