Imposter Syndrome in analytics is real. It can catch you off guard when you’ve been in the job for years and sometimes it catches you before you can even get started.
If you haven’t heard of it before, imposter syndrome – or fraud syndrome – is when you doubt your skills, talents or accomplishments. There’s usually a fatalistic outlook that comes with it. A fear that you’re going to be exposed as a “fraud”, you won’t be able to find another job in the future, you’re not sure you can actually do the work. Your perception doesn’t line up with reality.
It’s a lot simpler to talk about imposter syndrome in analytics for people that have clearly demonstrated their skills – they’ve been hired, promoted, received good performance reviews, etc.
What about when you haven’t found that first job though? You’ve been building your skills, thinking about a change, but you’re not sure if your skills are up to par. Will anyone actually want to hire you?
