Hi Ana, I took different courses than the recommendations in these guides— primarily because these guides didn’t exist when I was creating my curriculum! You can see my whole program here, which will end up taking me around a year in total. That year includes finishing off a few courses for my undergraduate degree, a part-time job, and a month-long trip to India. One benefit of a self-created program is that you can speed up, slow down, and pause your timeline as necessary. I’m just starting the application process for full-time jobs, so no official internship, though that part-time role that I started was as a Data Consultant for Class Central.
