Why talk to a data science mentor?

Data scientists with experience in marketing are in extremely high demand in the job market. Being able to run a regression analysis to justify your marketing campaigns to your boss might have seemed a bit overkill a couple years ago, but it’s now completely normal. In today’s competitive landscape, it’s just not possible to let marketers run wild with their gut feelings. Marketing is now data-led, or at the very least, data-inspired.

But if you’re not a mathematician a lot of the concepts in data science might seem a bit intimidating. Being able to jump on a Zoom call with a growth marketer with data science background can be an extremely refreshing experience for junior growth marketers that are trying to cut their teeth in the world of data science.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
