In this video you will learn how to import your flat files into R. Want to take the interactive coding exercises and earn a certificate? Join DataCamp today, and start our intermediate R tutorial for free: https://www.datacamp.com/courses/importing-data-into-r In this first chapter, we'll start with flat files. They're typically simple text files that contain table data. Have a look at states.csv, a flat file containing comma-separated values. The data lists basic information on some US states. The first line here gives the names of the different columns or fields. After that, each line is a record, and the fields are separated by a comma, hence the name comma-separated values. For example, there's the state Hawaii with the capital Honolulu and a total population of 1.42 million. What would that data look like in R? Well, actually, the structure nicely corresponds to a data frame in R, that ideally looks like this: the rows in the data frame correspond to the records and the columns of the data frame correspond to the fields. The field names are used to name the data frame columns. But how to go from the CSV file to this data frame? The mother of all these data import functions is the read.table() function. It can read in any file in table format and create a data frame from it. The number of arguments you can specify for this function is huge, so I won't go through each and every one of these arguments. Instead, let's have a look at the read.table() call that imports states.csv and try to understand what happens. The first argument of the read.table() function is the path to the file you want to import into R. If the file is in your current working directory, simply passing the filename as a character string works. If your file is located somewhere else, things get tricky. Depending on the platform you're working on, Linux, Microsoft, Mac, whatever, file paths are specified differently. To build a path to a file in a platform-independent way, you can use the file.path() function. Now for the header argument. If you set this to TRUE, you tell R that the first row of the text file contains the variable names, which is the case here. read.table() sets this argument FALSE by default, which would mean that the first row is already an observation. Next, sep is the argument that specifies how fields in a record are separated. For our csv file here, the field separator is a comma, so we use a comma inside quotes. Finally, the stringsAsFactors argument is pretty important. It's TRUE by default, which means that columns, or variables, that are strings, are imported into R as factors, the data structure to store categorical variables. In this case, the column containing the country names shouldn't be a factor, so we set stringsAsFactors to FALSE. If we actually run this call now, we indeed get a data frame with 5 observations and 4 variables, that corresponds nicely to the CSV file we started with. The read table function works fine, but it's pretty tiring to specify all these arguments every time, right? CSV files are a common and standardized type of flat files. That's why the utils package also provides the read.csv function. This function is a wrapper around the read.table() function, so read.csv() calls read.table() behind the scenes, but with different default arguments to match with the CSV format. More specifically, the default for header is TRUE and for sep is a comma, so you don't have to manually specify these anymore. This means that this read.table() call from before is thus exactly the same as this read.csv() call. Apart from CSV files, there are also other types of flat files. Take this tab-delimited file, states.txt, with the same data: To import it with read.table(), you again have to specify a bunch of arguments. This time, you should point to the .txt file instead of the .csv file, and the sep argument should be set to a tab, so backslash t. You can also use the read.delim() function, which again is a wrapper around read.table; the default arguments for header and sep are adapted, among some others. The result of both calls is again a nice translation of the flat file to a an R data frame. Now, there's one last thing I want to discuss here. Have a look at this US csv file and its european counterpart, states_eu.csv. You'll notice that the Europeans use commas for decimal points, while normally one uses the dot. This means that they can't use the comma as the field-delimiter anymore, they need a semicolon. To deal with this easily, R provides the read.csv2() function. Both the sep argument as the dec argument, to tell which character is used for decimal points, are different. Likewise, for read.delim() you have a read.delim2() alternative. Can you spot the differences again? This time, only the dec argument had to change.

This is an excellent guide to attend interviews. 101 Great Answers To The Toughest Interview Questions contains a collection of all possible interview questions and how to answer and face them in a typical interview. A prospective job seeker can also get excellent tips to cracking hard interview questions in this video. Learn to crack your interview today! The interviewing process is a kind of sale. In this case, you are the product—and the salesperson. If you show up unprepared to talk about your unique features and benefits, you're not likely to motivate an interviewer to "buy." The sad fact is that many job candidates are unprepared to talk about themselves. You may have mailed a gorgeous resume and cover letter. You may be wearing the perfect clothes on the day of the interview. But if you can't convince the interviewer—face to face—that you are the right person for the job, you aren't likely to make the sale. Too many candidates hesitate after the first open-ended question, then stumble and stutter their way through a disjointed litany of resume "sound bites." Other interviewees recite canned replies that only highlight their memory skills. The days of filling out the standard application and chatting your way through one or two interviews are gone. These days, interviewers and hiring managers are reluctant to leave anything to chance. Many have begun to experiment with the latest techniques for data-gathering and analysis. For employers, interviewing has become a full-fledged science. More employers seem to be looking for a special kind of employee—someone with experience, confidence, and the initiative to learn what he or she needs to know. Someone who requires very little supervision. Someone with a hands-on attitude—from beginning to end. Because employers can't tell all that from a job application and a handshake, here's what they're making you do: Pass the test(s). You'll probably have to go through more interviews than your predecessors for the same job—no matter what your level of expertise. Knowledge and experience still give you an inside edge. But these days, you'll need stamina, too. Your honesty, your intelligence, your mental health—even the toxicity of your blood—may be measured before you can be considered fully assessed. Brave more interviews. You may also have to tiptoe through a mine field of different types of interview situations—and keep your head—to survive as a new hire. Don't go out and subscribe to a human resources journal. Just do all you can to remain confident and flexible—and ready with your answers. No matter what kind of interview you find yourself in, this approach should carry you through with flying colors. Let's take a brief, no-consequences tour of the interview circuit. What (Who) are You Up Against? There are three predominant interviewing types or styles: the Telephone Screener, the Human Screen, and the Manager. Which is which, and why would someone be considered one or the other? While personal temperament is one factor, the adoption of one or the other style is primarily a function of the interviewer's role in the organization and his or her daily workload. The Human Screen Many human resource and personnel professionals fall into this category. For these people, interviewing is not simply just a once-a-quarter or once-a-month event, but rather a key part of their daily job description. They meet and interview many people, and are more likely than either of the other two categories to consider an exceptional applicant for more than one possible opening within the organization. A primary objective of the Human Screen is to develop a strong group of candidates for Managers (see category three) to interview in person. To do this, of course, they must fend off many applicants and callers—a daunting task, because the Human Screen or the department in which he or she works is often the only contact provided in employment advertisements. Among the most common reasons for removal from the Human Screen's "hot" list are: lack of formal or informal qualifications as outlined in the organization's job description; sudden changes in hiring priorities and personnel requirements; poor performance during the in-person interview itself; and inaction due to the Human Screen's uncertainty about your current status or contact information. That last reason is more common than you might imagine. Human Screens are constantly swamped with phone calls, resumes, and unannounced visits from hopeful applicants. Odds are that despite their best efforts, they sometimes lose track of qualified people.

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
