For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Send me one follow up email (if I haven't responded to your initial contact). Good manners are really important. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A well-turned phrase in your cover letter (even better if you can make me laugh); Attention to the detail of the position requirements (send me a matrix chart with how you meet the requirements, and I may fall in love) Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Education and demonstration of skills.Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Typos - if you can't check your letter and resume for typos, you are not my kind of candidate. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Candidates can apply for multiple positions and not be penalized (but this typically doesn't apply to the way I work with clients).

Organizations often assume that their executives or data users are not data literate and don't understand how to ensure data is of quality and how everyone has a role in creating and managing data. Internal branding about how data helps management make better decisions has been around for a decade. But to go from data to information and knowledge, data literacy is not enough for the clients of data analytics practitioners. Business data analytics users need accurate multi-disciplinary skills to ask themselves what the data tells us and where and how these insights can be applied.
