Data analyst positions require some knowledge of Power BI or Tableau as a way to visualise your data. Typically I used Maps and reports to outline my research, but pivotting into a Data role, it is necessary to learn a visualisation tool so that your data output can be seen by others. Power BI is a microsoft product which is used by many companies, and whilst the software is free to download, publishing your work requires a licence. In contrast, Tableau has a paid and free (public) option so users can get to grips with learning the software and publishing (for free!) a dashboard. So I decided to finally try and create a Tableau Public dashboard using a tutorial published on youtube shown below. Credit to Nestor Adrianzen for publishing this content.
Here is the result of my Tableau Public dashboard.
This tutorial is great for being taught the basics. I feel I have enough confidence to go off and play with my own datasets and seeing what types of dashboards I can make.
