Now with the career fair in sight where mainly large companies and consultancies are present, you can also wonder if you might want to work for yourself as a freelancer. The title Data Scientist lends itself perfectly for organizing your own projects, flexible collaboration with others and creating your own path. However, if you have data on your CV you will be irrevocably called by various headhunters for jobs.
My (Jurjen) experiences with recruiters are not too good when it comes to coaching when it comes to hourly rates. Now there is Worksuite, Worksuite is a platform where Data Scientst can register for Data Science projects without the recruiter. This is not only financially advantageous, but it also breaks open the market, gives transparency about the true quality of the Data Scientist and the real projects of the client.
