Can i start career in data science after 6 yrs of experience as clinical sas programmer?


I have 6 years experience in clinical SAS programming. I have good knowledge of statistics . Also i am familiar with R and Python. So at this stage of career , can i pursue career in data science field ?

What are my prospects regarding job opportunities?
Please help.



You already in data science field. you need to learn some more advance statistical models like Decision trees, Deep learning etc.


Good decision sir ! but need more technical stuff ! all the best


You aleady covered the most important requirement by sayin “good knowledge in statistics”. Remaining you will pickup easily. Since your experience is on SAS, you don’t need to switch, you are already in Data science, just need to add up things… Good Luck
