Summary
DataCamp logoDataCamp

DataCamp has a very clear focus on teaching data skills, which we really like. Through this focus, they can offer specialized tools, like their browser workspaces, graded certifications and their data science job board. Also of this makes DataCamp a great platform for going from absolutely no data skills to a level where you might be able to get your first job in the industry. To conclude, we can wholeheartedly recommend DataCamp to students looking to get started with data science and AI skills.

LinkedIn Learning logoLinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online learning platforms, which can offer a lot of benefits that we like through the direct integration into the LinkedIn platform, like LinkedIn Premium access, as well as the direct integration of certificates from LinkedIn Learning into your LinkedIn profile. The instructors on LinkedIn Learning are highly qualified, and the courses cover all relevant career-focussed skills, which is why we can particularly recommend LinkedIn Learning for young professionals trying to upskill.
