Career change - 5 years of experience



I have work experience of 5 years as full stack developer and web developer and earning decent package. I am looking for career change to Data Science. I am planning to pursue a course in DS from a reputed institute. My main motto is to quench my desire for problem solving, but need to think of the career as well. After talking to people around me, i was of feeling that i wouldn’t earn as much as i do now and has to start as fresher in DS domain. Will my current experience be of any use or i have to start as fresher in data science? Should that be of any concern at all? I am little confused. What would be your suggestion?


Hi @chaitanyakanth,

If you wish to use your current knowledge and experience and also switch your domain from stack developer, you can consider career change to data engineering.
