You can listen to previous recordings
Sound like an interesting day
No data analyst on the call?
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!)
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
Check out tip #2 for examples for rephrasing your non-tech experience to tech
how can I belong to a community of data analysts of web developers?
A resource for everyone needing job search tips: https://go.entrylevel.net/workbooks
For advice for data analysts, check out my chat with Alexa here: https://www.entrylevel.net/interviews/6-certificates-in-data-analytics-alexas-story
She has an article of advice for data newbies (under resources section)
Key insight: find a similarity between you and someone you want to connect with -> sometimes job searching and getting experience is all about connections
Is EntryLevel VC Analyst course the only course you did to get the job?
please how can a newbie in codding get an internship to know more
I just registered for Entry level, please how do l start the course?
@Praisegod Odeh - do you have a portfolio of projects? You need to have some projects first. FreeCodeCamp has some sample projects
@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/
inspiring story @JohnPaul.
what are the best coding languages
@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
Does entrylevel have a course on software engineering
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
Hi everyone..how can I gain more knowledge on web design.
is Being an expert in sql alone sufficient for business analytics and intelligence?
@Josephine I love web design! Check out resources here (filter by “resources: design”): https://www.exitlevel.net/upskill
What is a portfolio and can I get that?
We also have a UX design course on https://www.entrylevel.net/
@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/)
@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/
@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?
Do Entry Level has full stack development courses?
@Tobi you can start with our Product Management Level 1 program! https://www.entrylevel.net/experiences/product
but the page seems to be on break.
@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)
@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
@Adenike if you don’t know which tech program you would like, take the quiz here: https://www.entrylevel.net/quiz
Adebayo Hammed Busayo
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
@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
How do I register for Data Analyst Certification program at Entry level
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??
@Jennifer, does this means I can create my project portfolio with entrylevel if I didn't have the trainings with entrylevel?
@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
I want to learn data analysis
@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
Am l supposed to join the Discord Team?
@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
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
@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/
@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)
@Lilian sorry to hear that 🙁 Maybe you could try some of our options outlined here: https://help.entrylevel.net/help/nigerian-cards-declining
There is a cold email template from another one of our digital marketing students here: https://www.entrylevel.net/interviews/using-entrylevel-to-get-a-job-atis-story
She shared some of her job search tips too
how about UX design
can I get a recording of this meeting on my email
Mosobalaje Afeez lanre
Is there a provision for internship for graduates of entry-level? thanks
I recently transitioned into UIUX Design. I have a portfolio of a few designs I have done. I am taking the Google UI/UX Professional Certificate course. I enjoy doing both the UX and the UI parts of product design.
How do I position myself for a job?
You will get a recording via email, but you can also check this website for all the resources next week: https://www.entrylevel.net/events
@Temilade - our UX program: https://www.entrylevel.net/experiences/ux
@Chikodi - you need to ensure you optimize your portfolio. Go to ADPList and get people to give you feedback! They have design experts to help you. Get feedback and improve
I would like to make Miss Oluwatoyin Abioye as my persnal mentor towards achieving my goal...please how can you help me to achieve this
please I would love to get a recording of this meeting on my email
the website shows that the product management course will start on 11 Jan 2022... isn't that a mistake?is any product management class starting before the end of this year?
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!
who will be my mentor
Yes, our next cohort is in January because December is holidays
I need a mentor
so kindly correct the date from 2022 to 2023
how can one apply for January cohort?
@Oyetoke here is advice to finding a mentor: https://www.entrylevel.net/post/the-biggest-mistakes-people-make-when-finding-mentors
OHH good catch @Olatunde! I will fix website now, thank you!
when is the opening for January cohort starting
I need an advise on how to start my data analysis program
January cohort enrolment starts now
@Abayomi I just took the data program, you can email me email@example.com
how do apply for enrollment
@Alyce - I collect all the resources for tech stuff in our email newsletter! Feel free to read it and see if you like it and then subscribe if you want: https://levelup.beehiiv.com/
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?
@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/
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
@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)
@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
how do I join a tech community
