A course called "[Intro to] data science" should be taken about as seriously in hiring as "Intro to computer science", or "Intro to mechanical engineering". There's no reason these courses should bear any weight in hiring, and it's disingenuous to attempt to lead people to believe otherwise.

I was talking about people who study in depth on their own after the course.
