    I don't see the companies HR knows where to find talents. I tried to raise attention in my past company that there was an elephant in the room that C officers need to tackle. As a result, I was laid off in late 2019. However I started up my business during pandemic to build my abilities in Accounting, Marketing, Operating business etc. Still with my transferable ability from Inflight entertainment industry, I was not able to get an interview in Netflix, Apple TV or Disney+, as I found room of improvement in the user experience in those platforms. I keep working my best in my own business and trying to develop youtube content/podcast and hopefully one day those OTT company found me.

  3. Cảm ơn Vũ vì đã truyền động lực cho mình. Mình muốn hỏi một điều là làm data analyst có cần phải giỏi tiếng anh không bạn. Tiếng anh của mình nếu thi Ielts thì cũng chỉ tầm 7.5-8 và kĩ năng viết của mình không tốt lắm. Mình sẽ cải thiện. Trước giờ mình toàn chọn những công việc technical một tí và luôn tránh xa những nghành đòi hỏi tiếng anh. Mình muốn thay đổi một lần. Cảm ơn thời gian của bạn!

  4. the 1337th like was me, i couldnt resist 😁

  5. I'm a believer that we should never abandon our chosen paths due to macroeconomic conditions. Instead, continue to forge a path, invest in education and personal growth, push the envelope by adding layers to your skillset, improve your portfolio, network and teach others. Eventually, once the tide turns you'll be in a far stronger position than others who have less faith and change with the shifting sands.

  6. Yeah i was pissed, many countries' economy were alr in the green light recovering. And then someone had to play Command & Conquer in real life. Some of my company's ships had to take a longer route now & some have to cancel or delay everytime an incident occurs. For instance, a tanker of another company (a ship, not a tank) got hit. But ppl often downplay the effects of supply chain disruption.

  7. Lol, I am reading that book. It's prrtty interesting!

  8. Congratulations on hitting 100k.

  9. Hi Mam i am little confuse how to practice for data science … i enrolled for a program i know basic knowledge of python .. what should my daily routine like ( learning..practicing ) .. how much should i practice and what to practice … it will be very helpful for new learner thanks.

  10. Nice video! Good luck to you

  11. Thank you so much, the macroeconomic theory one is so clearly explained. And the overall content is really really good (covering all important aspect that we should know and also being so insightful. Hope u know that i really appreciate your content. Subscribed❤

  12. Really inspiring! Thank you!

  13. needed that economics refresher

  14. Great stuff!! 💯

  15. Love this video. I took on a pretty hefty side-project for a local non-profit. I wanted to help locate our local food pantries and homeless shelters and every month send a report to the non-profit on which shelters are helping the most people [and theories as to why].

    Now, I'm doing it [still as a side-project] for my state. It's difficult. The data is so nebulous. But it truly does help to branch out and 'produce' something that makes your life feel fulfilling. I'm hoping I actually develop a model that I can just give organizations because when you do these type of projects you get 800 OTHER ideas in the process.

    As always, thanks for the inspiration Thu Vu!

  16. What to choose web development or data science?

  17. i admired your knowledge and also the willingness to share it with the world. It would be great if you could share your english learning path as well.🥰

  18. Hi, I try to join your discord but it somehow says the invitation is expired?

  19. ma'am next video on jupyter lab tutorial

  20. Great video! As an economics student (bachelors before, now masters), and a learner of data science, I related to this video so much! Although I still think that what I have learned in economics is quite relevant for data science since econometrics is basically an intro to data science for me. Tbh I believe that time series analysis is a form of data science 🙂

  21. Person in a bullshit job here, its the 2nd bullshit one in 3 jobs I've acted on in my life, for me the ideia that 40% of jobs are bullshit is even in a certain way optimistic, almost all I see its maintenance of bad code, and any trial of fixing or rebuilding the system is shut down cus of "budget limitation" when maintenance costs almost as much as rebuilding the system. Even the suggestion of clearing up development stuff that accidentally got into production is soo limited by burocracy that we often see management asking to write out exception error as "passes", as in "we understand that is an error but cant you just code it to make it pass and we deal with it later".

  22. Well thought-out 16 minutes of economics Thu! Thank you so much 🙂

  23. If you want to encourage yourself to build a new skillset on tech during these hard times, I highly recommend NeetCode's video:
    It is a good take on layoffs and how his story about job hunting during covid, relates to job hunting now.

  24. you are so energetic, always!

  25. It is not so much about saving the money. Average people don't have much money to save in the first place. It is more about companies not being able to get cheap money to expand. Now companies now have to pay more interests so they can't afford to hire or keep people. Many zomby companies will go bankrupt due to higher interest rate.

  26. Fantastic video

  27. You can't explain recession as a consequence of business cycles and not include the large effect of gov't regulatory changes without being willfully complicit in hiding regulatory damage. The whole purpose and justification of regulations is to affect the economy, and it's enforced on national and global scales, so it's much more an actor of interest than various business cycles. The people "leveling the playing field" imposed global lockdowns and damaged the economy, which is actually hundreds of millions of people's life-long pursuits.

  28. Some one who talks in models and maths. You have my full attention.

    Good overview of the current economic situation.

    With regards to BS jobs, these usually occur at large corporate businesses with multiple internal business units. They have reliable income streams, the business units, in part, work to create new income streams and flay around trying to establish new directions and income.

    Federal Government jobs also suffer from the same directionless syndrome, in my direct experience at both over a 45 year career.

    In terms of ML jobs, for small to medium business units, focus on providing the How more than the Why. In other words how do you implement an ML setup to save a business money or fullfil a contract, more so than why does this ML work and make sense to use (the strategy and modelling). IMHO you need the why figured out before you can do the how. Perversely, smaller business's don't care, they just want to be shown the how. So what happens is that a (previous) really good programmer gets the job (better than my coding skills) but they haven't got a clue which way to proceed. They know their ML strategies but don't understand the underlying physics of the problem model. You look at the code they produced and its beautiful. But their code ultimately fails because their combined approach between coder and management is, let's throw code at the wall and see what sh*t sticks. And it doesn't. A common problem is that you will work for very savvy business people who know how to attract money for a job. Unfortunately their eyes glaze over when you try to explain the maths or the model of what your doing. DON'T do it. Don't explain the nuisances of the problem (like you don't have enough data, we have to use a T distribution). Just give them an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and say "this will do the job and later will need improvements). It gives them a quick solution and gives you a get out of jail card for the future (record the event in an email or document).

    As for band aid solutions that management go for, it's a very common problem. Just fix the current mess and get it working. "don't waste time engineering a better solution, the risks are too high you will fail and the rewards of a new system are too uncertain". Unfortunately, it's the norm. Patch it and suffer, we don't have the time and resources to do it properly….

    I applaud your positivity and mental stance. You truly are a producer rather than a consumer of knowledge. What a great attitude. You are addressing important problems, specifically the Phylosophy as well the mechanics of ML work. And yes, never stop learning. Stay curious. Life is an adventure.

  29. Thanks for this wonderful video. I am in the project management field and would like to transition into more data-related post. This gave me a clear mindset on what to prioritize more on the job hunt.

  30. All I can say after watching this video is, thank you. You've shared such optimism and hope for us all.

  31. I would say instead of a "white collar recession" is probably more of an "H1B1 recession" time to start creating those anchor Babies folks 🤣😂

  32. As an investing enthusiast, I often wonder how top level investors are able to become millionaires off investing. I do have a significant amount of capital that is required to start up but I have no idea what strategies and direction I need to approach to help me make decent return

    Great video I must say 👍 but I'd love to ask, as a beginner in data analysis, how's the best way to put all you've learnt to practice to retain your knowledge.

    Secondly could you help me with platforms where I can search for junior entry data analyst jobs 🙏
