Data science website organising lots of data analytics competitions. Entry is free for individual participants or teams. Anonymised test data provided, results evaluated by Kaggle.
As an example, data science website Kaggle offers a competition (without a prize) on an ongoing basis for entry level data scientists to predict the survivors of the Titanic. The website provides datasets, offers tutorials on tools and methods and you can also connect with more experience experts.
Other competitions offer prizes sponsored by companies or public bodies (but usually there are many individuals or teams to compete against). Still, if you are doing well in Kaggle competitons then you have a good chance to get a job.
