You can improve your data science skills by practicing in kaggle website and also you will get opportunity to participate in many hackathons where you will meet data science enthusiasts. I hope it helps you 🙂

I have completed the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate and number of other Data Science and AI related courses here. What I can suggest is thinking on your own what problems are you interested in solving with data science, finding the right dataset all by yourself, cleaning and wrangling data and then solving the problem. This will help you excel as a data scientist faster then through Kaggle and will actually equip you with the right skills. In my work, just to extract some basic information out of the data, I need to format the data for hours or so. Many data scientists tell that too, you need some proper data wrangling skills, and that is rarely taught on any courses on adequate level - this is done on practice. Kaggle doesn't help either here.
Moreover, doing your own creative projects in the domain you'd like to work in will boost your portfolio far better then Kaggle.
