We talked with Mike Thurston, a Senior HR Analytics Research Analyst at Intermountain Healthcare, who used Tableau in some of his classes at Utah State University. “My experience using Tableau in the classroom definitely helped me to get the position I’m in today,” he said. “The posting for my job listed knowledge of Tableau and SQL as requirements, and I brought a Tableau work sample into my interview. On the next interview, they told me they wanted me to do for them what I had done with Tableau in my class. I now use Tableau every day.”
