No data analyst on the call?
Jennifer Chou
24:21
Unfortunately no data analyst today but I recommend checking out https://twitter.com/Alexa_Ighodaro (she’s an EntryLevel data student and doing amazing things too!)
Jennifer Chou
25:31
For everyone asking about how to merge different fields, or having work experience that is non-tech related: https://www.entrylevel.net/post/3-resume-mistakes-you-dont-know-youre-making
Jennifer Chou

Check out tip #2 for examples for rephrasing your non-tech experience to tech
Godwin eno

Jennifer Chou
28:57
For advice for data analysts, check out my chat with Alexa here: https://www.entrylevel.net/interviews/6-certificates-in-data-analytics-alexas-story
Jennifer Chou
29:10
She has an article of advice for data newbies (under resources section)
Jennifer Chou
31:06
Key insight: find a similarity between you and someone you want to connect with -> sometimes job searching and getting experience is all about connections
Iman
31:31
wow

31:42
Is EntryLevel VC Analyst course the only course you did to get the job?
Emmanuella
32:06
lol Brilliant
Praisegod Odeh
32:33
please how can a newbie in codding get an internship to know more
Ada Amos
32:49
I just registered for Entry level, please how do l start the course?
Jennifer Chou
33:08
@Praisegod Odeh - do you have a portfolio of projects? You need to have some projects first. FreeCodeCamp has some sample projects
Jennifer Chou
33:54
@Ada Amos - If you registered after Nov 14, you have to wait before the next cohort starts! If you registered before Nov 14, you’re in November cohort and can start by logging into https://app.entrylevel.net/
Ngozi Okonkwo
34:03
inspiring story @JohnPaul.
Caleb Yirenkyi
34:10
what are the best coding languages
Jennifer Chou
35:28
@Caleb Yirenkyi - depends on what you want to go into (front-end, back-end, etc) and what you like to do! I think most ppl start with Python (easy to learn + can do a lot with it). For Data Analysts, you have to eventually learn Python anyway
Jonnie
36:31
Does entrylevel have a course on software engineering
Jennifer Chou
36:40
Insight: a portfolio will help you stand out. Put your best work in them (EntryLevel can help you create a portfolio step-by-step)
Josephine Chidinma Ozuomba
37:14
Hi everyone..how can I gain more knowledge on web design.
Ahmed
38:22
is Being an expert in sql alone sufficient for business analytics and intelligence?
Jennifer Chou
38:46
@Josephine I love web design! Check out resources here (filter by “resources: design”): https://www.exitlevel.net/upskill
Johnson Adesanya
38:46
What is a portfolio and can I get that?
Jennifer Chou
38:50
We also have a UX design course on https://www.entrylevel.net/
Jennifer Chou
39:17
@Ahmed - you should have a portfolio of projects where you used SQL (I know Data Analyst Level 2 & 3 has SQL projects - see them on https://www.entrylevel.net/)
Jennifer Chou
40:04
@Johnson - a portfolio just shows all your projects and work! But EntryLevel walks you through the portfolio creation process step-by-step because you work on all the projects with us, then the end you submit a portfolio you make after all you learned with us: https://www.entrylevel.net/
Ayo Adisa
40:42
@Jennifer , please as a newbie frontend developer how do I get started with my job search? and how can I create a portfolio with entrylevel?
Ayodeji
40:59
Do Entry Level has full stack development courses?
Jennifer Chou
41:13
@Tobi you can start with our Product Management Level 1 program! https://www.entrylevel.net/experiences/product
Ahmed
41:25
@Jennifer thanks
Ahmed
42:07
but the page seems to be on break.
Jennifer Chou
42:17
@Tibby your portfolio can be anywhere and its depends on the company/role you’re applying for! Some have portfolios in PDF, but most have websites (Github website if Data analyst, Webflow if you’re interested in no-code and front-end dev, or even easy site builders (Carrd.co, Tilda.cc, UXFolio)
Jennifer Chou
43:00
@Ayo and @Ayodeji we don’t really specialize in coding courses but I have resources for that here (go to “programming and development”): https://www.exitlevel.net/upskill
Jennifer Chou
43:30
@Adenike if you don’t know which tech program you would like, take the quiz here: https://www.entrylevel.net/quiz
Adebayo Hammed Busayo
43:35
I have a certification from entry level from ingressive for Good where I learnt about Product management and I had a portfolio on that....I got a scholarship to learning about programming but I couldn't continue due to work.I have preliminary study on python and R code... I need to learn more on tech , I want to go into tech fully
Jennifer Chou
44:11
@Njei - yes we have a “free if you finish” model. So if you complete the course you get a complete refund on what you paid
Oluchi Alaribe
44:16
How do I register for Data Analyst Certification program at Entry level
Franca Bernard
44:25
Hi,I don't have a tech background just process engineering experiences,but am really interested in been a part of the entry level program how do I get in??
Ayo Adisa
45:36
@Jennifer, does this means I can create my project portfolio with entrylevel if I didn't have the trainings with entrylevel?
Jennifer Chou
46:21
@Tibby - for PM a portfolio would include what problem you’re solving, what you did to solve it (user research, feature prioritization and what frameworks you used, etc). EntryLevel’s Product Management program has a template portfolio to help you complete the program: https://www.entrylevel.net/experiences/product
Abayomi
46:33
I want to learn data analysis
Jennifer Chou
47:14
@Oluchi Yay so excited to have you join and learn with us! You can enrol by clicking “enrol now” button and signing up. Note that there will be a payment page but your money is refunded after you complete the course (submit your portfolio + peer review before the deadlines): https://www.entrylevel.net/experiences/data
Ada Amos
47:39
Am l supposed to join the Discord Team?
Jennifer Chou
47:58
@Franca - depends on the tech experience you want, and what you want to work as! We have product manager, data analyst, UX designer, digital marketer, and more: https://www.entrylevel.net/quiz
Jasmine Greg - Nwoye
48:24
I want to actively transit into data analysis. I'm ready to be an unpaid intern in this field, but the experience is very important
Busayo
48:43
Really insightful
Jennifer Chou
48:47
@Ayo - the training includes the portfolio. So if you enrol on our website and do the coursework you will end up with a portfolio anyway. Because to complete the course you need to complete the portfolio: https://www.entrylevel.net/
Jennifer Chou
49:46
@Ada Amos - if you have enrolled in our programs, you should get an email with Discord joining instructions! It can be found on the “teams” tab on https://app.entrylevel.net/ once you log in too. Joining is optional but I highly recommend joining because you can ask your classmates questions when you are stuck. It helped me a lot when I took Data Analyst 1 (cuz I was stuck on the Tableau part)
Franca Bernard
49:55
thanks jennifer
Jennifer Chou

Jennifer Chou
56:39
I will link everyone’s linkedin on our events page + email it to all of you, so don’t worry! If you want someone to be your mentor though - remember to try to find something similar between the two of you!
Oyetoke Anu

FM
58:58
Talking about learning the right way - if I want to be a VC Analyst, is the VC Analyst course the first step or should one do the Financial Analyst course first?
Jennifer Chou
59:13
@Iheanacho Michael - you just click “enrol now” on our website then sign up. Then click the program you are interested in to enrol: https://www.entrylevel.net/
Stephen Ugwu
59:48
I have taken a few bootcamps on on data analytics and have a few portfolios but I would love to learn further. I noticed the courses on data analyst on your website all starts on the same day. is it something I can juggle with a full time job
Jennifer Chou
59:56
@FM - try VC Analyst first. Then, if you want more knowledge then do Financial Analyst after. In fact, I would also recommend Product Management since it’s a popular one for startup founders (how to build a product - then you can understand startups more)
Jennifer Chou
01:00:40
@Stephen our courses run every month so we recommend doing one at a time. It also depends on your experience level… Data 1 is just excel and Tableau. Data 2 is beginning SQL, and Data 3 is advanced SQL
Temilade Saka
01:01:00
