I Was Once a Frustrated, Aspiring Data Scientist, Too...
I'm Kyle McKiou and I went from a frustrated software engineer to Director of Data Science in just over 2 years—I more than doubled my salary and worked for some of the biggest companies in the world along the way. 

Unfortunately, my first data science job search lasted almost 1 full year, and my second took me another 8 months... And I know that there are others out there that have been struggling for just as long.

My path to becoming a data scientist was frustrating and anything but straightforward. It still makes me upset to think about how much time I wasted following misinformation! And I'm sick and tired of seeing driven, passionate candidates get overlooked when they apply for data science jobs (is that you?)—I want to give you the system that I used to become a data scientist and that I used to change my life forever.

If you've struggled to break into data science, been confused by misinformation, frustrated by insane job descriptions, or just don't know where to start, then this is the program you've been looking for. Let me tell you why...
You've tried everything and still can't break through
At this point, you might feel like you've tried everything. Maybe you've submitted 500 job applications and barely gotten any interviews. Maybe even none. You've tried kaggle and used every resume tip that you can find. Still nothing. No matter what you do, you can't seem to crack the code and land a job as a data scientist. Job descriptions are outrageous and everybody asks for 5 years of experience, even for entry-level positions.

Right now, you're probably wondering, can I really land a job as a data scientist? It probably feels almost impossible.

Fortunately for you, it's not. Will it require some hard work? Absolutely—but it can be done.

But what you need right now isn't a motivational speech or 50 more articles to read—you already have too many of those—what you need right now is expert guidance that provides you a clear path to becoming a data scientist. A system that will walk you through, step-by-step, the process you need to follow to finally land your first job as a data scientist. A system that will make sure your hard work moves you in the right direction.
Wouldn't it be nice to be a data scientist?
I bet you'd love to have a fulfilling, challenging, exciting, impactful career as a data scientist. I mean, who wouldn't? HBR named Data Scientist the "Sexiest Job of the 21st Century" and Glassdoor called it the "#1 Job in America." And both for good reason. It is a dynamic, rewarding, challenging career where you get paid to make a major impact. And paid well, I might add.

In fact, the average data scientist in America makes about $121k/year. Not bad, right? And many Sr Data Scientists make well in excess of $150k/year. That is some serious money! It certainly wouldn't hurt to have a job that is fulfilling AND pays well. Am I right?

Unfortunately, there are only so many jobs to go around. And there are a lot of candidates. There are more and more data science degree programs and bootcamps popping up every day. The competition is fierce and only becoming fiercer.

Of course, you could always aim to get a job as a data analyst, or a BI analyst, or a software developer. In fact, maybe you're already working in one of these fields. If so, you probably know that the average data analyst makes about $65k/year, according to And BI analysts and software developers both make about $80k on average.

You could probably get a serious raise if you could land a job as a data scientist. In the range of $20k-$40k per year. Maybe more. What would you do with an extra $40k? (I personally made a $60k jump with a single job change following the DSDJ system.)

But if you don't land a job as a data scientist soon, it's going to cost you. The market is becoming more competitive and you're losing money every day you waste struggling with the job search. If you want to become a data scientist, you need to take action and make the transition now—before it's too late.
Wouldn't it be great if someone would tell you exactly what you need to do?
I was once an aspiring data scientist just like you. I was completely lost and overwhelmed by all of the information out there. I read job descriptions and couldn't understand how a single person was supposed to have so many skills. It was insane.

I put in dozens of applications and didn't get a single response. 

For months I tried, but I wasn't getting anywhere. Eventually, I managed to get two recruiters to talk to me, but they both told me the same thing: I didn't have enough experience and companies were only looking for candidates with experience, or those who “had worked as a data scientist before."

I felt dejected and angry—the system wasn't fair. I was working hard, had great skills and was learning new ones every day, putting myself out there, everything.

What was I supposed to do? I was a software developer, completely bored out of my mind, and stuck with a mediocre salary—not bad, but not exactly my dream—I wanted to become a data scientist!

The work seemed like more fun and I knew I could make a real impact in a business (and the world!) if I could just land a job as a data scientist—plus, I would get a nice salary increase that would give the financial freedom to finally do the things I loved in my free time (anyone else love travelling or want to buy a new car?).

But I just wasn't getting anywhere.

I wanted to quit.

But I stopped for a minute to evaluate my situation.

I knew that quitting wouldn't help me reach my goals. My actions weren't creating the results I wanted. I realized I had to radically change my approach: I had to become my own job search expert.

So I started reading...a lot. And experimenting. I read every job search blog out there. I read everything about becoming a data scientist and compiled all the advice I could find.

I tried almost everything. I learned the hard way that about 90% of the conventional advice out there is completely useless.

Eventually, though, with a whole lot of trial-and-error, I began to get a feel for the process and understand what companies were really looking for (hint: there are exactly 3 things you need to know here).

I kept experimenting and tweaking my approach until I finally started to get some traction. A couple phone calls here and there. A few emails. Finally some phone interviews.
I began to develop a system that actually got me noticed
I began to make progress after months of experimentation. At first, I was just happy to get the attention of recruiters. Then I started consistently getting phone screens. Then I figured out how to pass them. Then I cracked the take-home assignments. Finally I figured out how to get through the on-site interviews.

I kept tweaking my approach until I had the perfect system. 

Eventually I knew I could contact any company at any time and get an interview, and if it was a good fit, I was going to secure an offer too.

I finally felt empowered.

I finally had control of my career.

I was getting more interviews than I could handle. I turned down trips to Silicon Valley, Austin, and Seattle because I was so overbooked with interviews.

Not only did I land an offer as a data scientist, I was able to land multiple offers. Then I leveraged my system to rapidly move up the ranks, into my dream job, leading an entire department of data scientists.

And you know what? Contrary to popular belief, it was a lot easier than I expected once I understood the system.
Since breaking into the field, I have hired numerous (20+!) data scientists, and mentored many more to land their own dream jobs in the field.
My students have gotten offers for data science roles at:
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Google
  • Microsoft
  • Capital One
  • Allstate
  • Deloitte
  • And more!
Now, I want to teach you my system, so that YOU can finally land the data science job you've been looking for. 

Right now you might be thinking - "that's awesome Kyle, but will this system really work for me? After all, I'm not like you." The answer is an emphatic YES.

I've reviewed thousands of resumes, interviewed hundreds of candidates, and haven't yet found a single person that my system wouldn't help with their job search. No matter if you're male, female, shy, outgoing, experienced or not—this course will help you leverage your unique skills and perspective so you can land the job of your dreams.

It's taken me years of experience and thousands of hours of experimentation to create this system.

I've recorded 15+ hours of videos, combined with detailed action plans, case studies, and voice-over walkthroughs that give real-world examples to illustrate the concepts that I talk about.

I've taken all of the confusion out of the process for you with Data Science Dream Job™.

Hear What Some of Our Students Are Saying...
Christopher Cochet
Current DSDJ Student
“Kyle has put together something very special here. I can’t tell you how useful the program’s modules, videos, and coaching have been. I understand now much better what I am aiming for. Data Science Dream Job is hands down the best investment I’ve made to meet my data science objectives.”
Raman Singh
Current DSDJ Student
“I think all of us want to achieve a lot of things in life. We all have dreams, but we are not consistently working towards them. No matter whether I got 10 rejection emails that day, had a bad interview or anything else, the course material keeps me motivated every morning I get up."

Jean-Sebastien Provost
Current DSDJ Student
“I’ve gotten so much value out of being a part of the DSDJ community—I was a course instructor for almost 12 years in the past and I truly enjoy being able to teach/discuss ideas with data enthusiasts again. The DSDJ community is very unique in its willingness to help others and its authenticity.”
Micy Liu
Current DSDJ Student
“Overall, I really recommend DSDJ to anyone interested in making the transition to DS. I recommend it for two reasons: 1) the founder Kyle is passionate about helping Aspiring DS and works on the program full time--DSDJ is updated frequently with the most relevant information and will keep getting even better than it already is! 2) Kyle is not just preaching about stuff. He has landed data science jobs and made career transitions and done it very well.

I think it’s important to be part of a course that not only tells you how to get a job in an efficient way but also provides support, encouragement and motivation to students. And DSDJ has done that!"
Santosh Konchada
Current DSDJ Student
“I was in the job search for close to 5 months doing things wrong and expecting to crack the interview with cold calling skills. DSDJ has shown me the right approach not only in terms of job search but also how to present yourself, right from getting a job to surviving in a job.

The best part of the course is getting to see demonstration of real time projects from end to end with an aim to solve a business problem. The course has all the necessary things to become a successful data scientist.”

Sriharsha Mushnoori
Current DSDJ Student
“So far, I have been impressed by the course. I was a little skeptical at first considering that this was a sizable investment for someone without a job, but I am blown away by the amount of effort that went into the course. Some of the initial material was stuff I already knew, but having it all together in one place was immensely helpful.

The moderators' responsiveness, the active community, and the high quality material makes this a quality investment. I am actively applying what I'm learning to my application process, and I am sure I will see the benefits in the months to come.”

Gaurang Sadafule
Current DSDJ Student
"DSDJ not only helps guide your technical expertise, but you start to see things clearly for yourself... and the clutter in your mind from past rejections is driven away."

Micy Liu
Current DSDJ Student
"Kyle is not only a data science mentor and career mentor, but also a life mentor. So happy to be a part of the DSDJ!"

Preet Rajdeo
Current DSDJ Student
"I wanted to see things from the hiring manager’s perspective and that’s exactly what the course gives me! It is literally a road map to getting the data science job of your dreams."  

John Capozzo
Data Scientist - Syngenta
"It is hard to overstate how pivotal meeting Kyle has been for my career in data science.

With his advice and mentorship, I was able to transition into data science - first with an internship, and then two full-time offers while I was still in school - all without sending out a single application.

I can’t say enough positive things about Kyle as a mentor, leader, and person!

I suggest Data Science Dream Job for anybody that is looking to become a data scientist - Kyle’s advice and selfless desire to help is quite simply invaluable!"
Andrew Mehrmann
Data Scientist - Allstate
"Kyle's advice not only helped me land my first job as a data scientist, but it made the entire process simple.

He taught me the behind-the-scenes games that companies play and the secrets to hack the system to get noticed and land interviews. The entire process was a lot simpler than I thought once I realized what recruiters and hiring managers were really looking for.

I definitely recommend Data Science Dream Job for anybody that's looking to get hired as a data scientist."

Li Miao
Data Scientist - Microsoft
"Few people have the opportunity to work with a coach and mentor that is of Kyle's quality, but I did.

When I was anxiously preparing for job interviews, his belief in me to succeed was always an inspiration. Kyle generously shared his expertise and experience with me - he inspired me to find my true strength in the vast and vague field of Data Science.

I not only landed multiple job offers with his help, but I used his negotiation tips to get a 10k salary increase with almost no effort. I can't recommend his course highly enough!"
