[D]How can I prepare for a research oriented role?(r/UofT)

If you want to a job upon graduation, you need the following items:

  • Work experience. No work experience, no job upon graduation. Sucks, right? But that’s a fact. Try to get as many internships as possible.
  • Languages: Python (fucking hot right now; NumPy, Pandas, TensorFlow), SQL (you need to know this as the back of your hand), R, and SAS (maybe, depends from the employer; from what I have heard, SAS is dying out).
  • Now, let’s talk about cherry on top. Few things that may really spice up your resume are TA and research opportunities. Additionally, it would be nice to have some independent projects, e.g. Time Series analysis of the Toronto housing market.

The problem with the Stats degree is that it is heavily theoretical. So, in order to balance it out, you need to get experience. Overall, I liked my experience with Stats, although I wish I spend more time on internships.

To summarize: work experience, programming, research.

Also, Machine Learning is hot right now. Pick up some books such as:
