If you want a data analytics job where you primarily get to use Tableau, but aren’t exactly sure what it takes to actually get that gig, this is the blog post for you.
It’s no secret that there is a lot of demand for people with solid data skills—and especially Tableau skills. In my current role at EXASOL, which I started in August 2016, I get to connect the right people, resources, and opportunities to ensure they get the most value out of their analytics tools.
While landing this job and other jobs where I’ve used Tableau, I’ve seen first-hand the requirements, hard and soft skills it takes to get the offer. Here are some great things I've learned to increase your chances of landing a job that uses Tableau.
For starters, you’ll need the chops to effectively derive insights from data with Tableau. In addition, it’s equally important to be able to effectively communicate all of the information to your stakeholders.
Even if this seems pretty obvious, you might be asking, “Okay, but how do I get to a higher level of competence and confidence?”
Fear not, I’ve curated a short list of what you can do now to boost your Tableau skills and propel your career in analytics.
