You will also continue to develop yourself towards becoming a future proof (and certified) data professional based on your experiences, background and preferences.
Jeremy's journey as a Data Chief
During my 1st project, I worked on a machine learning algorithm in Python that was used to estimate the price of used cars based on company and web data. The estimates were displayed in a Power BI dashboard, used by pricing managers, along with other useful information to set a price on the vehicles. It was an ideal introduction to different data tasks.
My 2nd project was in a business intelligence department, in a data scientist role. I estimated the probabilities of defaults of electrical components on Brussels' electricity network and was involved in day-to-day maintenance of the company's data warehouse. This project taught me a lot about professional data management.
Both these experiences came together in my 3rd project where I've been working on the development of a data warehouse from the start. As a business intelligence analyst, I was responsible of understanding the needs of the different departments, looking for the right metrics and data to answer them. Based on these analyses, I have been prototyping the dimensional model and ETL process to integrate the company's data in its data warehouse.
Besides these projects, ORMIT really helped me in knowing myself better through its trainings and coaching. It helped me to identify my social needs, strengths and weaknesses, which resulted in gaining confidence and having a better influence on the projects I've worked on. It also gave me an experience in very different work environments, giving me precious insights on which environment fits me better and why.
