Updating your resume is a skill that you can learn (yes you). Once you know how to expertly update your resume, you'll be able to effectively market your skills when applying for your next Data Science job and all of the jobs you apply to in the future.
You just need a nice looking template that gets past the automated systems, an understanding of what companies are looking for, and a way to showcase your skills that gets noticed and makes an impact. This is specifically what the Up-Level Your Resume course was designed to do.
This course is for you if you are applying to jobs and not receiving phone screens for the positions you want. If you are receiving phone screens, your resume is not the problem, the problem is at a different area in the job seeking process.
If you're applying to data science positions, in general, you have a quantitative degree, have an understanding of SQL, are familiar with at least one programming language, and have learned a couple machine learning techniques that you could apply to solve business problems with data. This course is also beneficial if you're trying to get a job in general analytics (as an analyst), and your skill set does not include machine learning or much programming, but you have a quantitative degree and understand SQL.
