Hi Ivan,

I am a Data Profiling Analyst for UBS. UBS is a financial services company but every day data science becomes more important to the industry. Foremost, having a very strong understanding of Microsoft Excel is the first thing you should be taking courses on. Excel is used by every company in the industry and serves many different purposes. Make sure you have a strong understanding of formulas and macros. Beyond that, try to take courses on specific software like Alteryx and Tableau. These programs are becoming more and more common and employers will take special notice if you have previous experience with these systems. Please feel free to reach out if you have any more questions or just want to chat!

Best,
Kai
