Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Welcome Career Changers participants!  We're excited for you to start your journey with Alteryx, and would love to ask you one question before you get started.


What are you hoping to ultimately attain by participating in the ADAPT program? Is it to add a new skill to your professional toolkit, to jump start a new career path, or something else entirely?


Thinking about this before you start is a great way to keep your focus as you work through the tasks contained in the program. Each of you will have a different goal, but everyone will be working through this together; so share your thoughts in the thread below!


**Just a note! You’ll see reference to our “ADAPT” program in thread. The ADAPT program was an initial COVID-response to help upskill those who had recently lost their jobs due to the pandemic. Because of the success of that program, it has evolved into our new Career Changer program – open to anyone looking to upskill themselves with data analytics through Alteryx.

My background is as a research scientist and informal science educator. Collecting, wrangling and analyzing data at different levels has been an important aspect of my career. My goal is to refine that experience and make it applicable within a business setting while gaining credentials and applicable experience.I hope that this provides additional experience to pivot my career. Also learning technologies currently in use in businesses (such as Alteryx) would provide an edge in my knowledge toolkit. Look forward to the challenges!


@lmalbertorio Thank you for sharing! I am excited for you, and we are here to cheer you on along the way! If any questions come up, don't hesitate to post them on our AFG Discussion board!

My ultimate goal is to reposition my career into the global learning sphere focused on big data. By participating in the ADAPT Program, I hope to experience the insights of other Alteryx learners, community members, and every day users. Thus far, my favorite page is the Excellence Awards. The stories give life to a totally new way of thinking about work and world possibilities. I love learning how Alteryx thinks, and even more, learning how people use it.


In many ways it is like walking in a subject matter expert's brain to learn how they process information to do what they do.  As I watch Alteryx brilliantly do in seconds what took me hours, I am amazed. Being able to have the power within this tool at my fingertips is exciting!


I look forward to exploring this path and learning where it leads for each of us. Thank you Alteryx!

I am super excited to participate in the ADAPT program because it will provide an opportunity for me to build upon a skill set that I started sometime ago.  I will also be able to collaborate with other like minded individuals as we proceed through this very rich educational journey.  This program will definitely lead me to a whole new and exciting career path.

Space X is on a mission to land on Mars the name of the Rovers are "Spirit" and "Opportunity" both designed to examine more territory, collect data, facts, videos, and pictures. 


In a similar manner, I have my own personal mission "Knowledge" alteryx is the rover that will provide the opportunity to launch my career and skills in a new direction. It will help me achieve my personal goals perhaps in the field of Airline/Transportation Revenue Management. I am extremely curious of how and why things work if I was in a pilot's cockpit I would touch every button.


My current status is furloughed alteryx will change that!
