I am currently working as a senior research analyst and I want to pursue a career in Big Data. My work revolves around market research, analysis and knowledge management. I have a total of 8 years of experience in market research and pre sales.
Primarily I want to move to Australia and I think there are good opportunities for Big Data analysts in Australia as it has applications for mining companies.
I read somewhere in the forum that “Consulting / research would count more. May not be counted 100%, but healthy fraction would be considered.”
I don’t want to change my career path totally and think Big data would complement by experience in research
I really want some help to understand on how I should pursue this further. I have no experience in using any analytic tool
