Career Transition


#1

Hello All,

Myself is Anwar and previously i have worked as RF telecom engineer in India and as well as abroad.combinely i have 5+ years of experience in Telecom.Now i have got trained in Data science and i have learn it from basic mathematics ,statistics and then i moved to Descriptive and Inferential statistics like confidence intervals ,Anamoly detection, Hypthesis test and ANOVA.after this i gained knowledge in prediction analysis likewise SLR,MLR,GLM, and few Machine learning concepts CART,Classifiers and SVM.Also i have good hold on SQL and R programming.

Now i am just only worried that because of my telecom background how hard it would be to get a kick start in Data Analytics as when i gone through few opening they been asking the relevant IT experience.

So i need few useful guidelines to get myself as Data analyst in this modern IT world.or pass me some suggestions on this email : dskhan09@gmail.com

Hi @Khan_DS

I dont think your experience of Telecom will hamper your career in Data science, I think it will help you make decision more accurately than other people in thie Telecom industry . I am also an Electronics and Communication engineer and i dont find any difficulty finding job in Data science field . So my suggestion is best of luck you will surely get a good job in DS field. During the Interview most of the person will ask Basic things related to DS so stick to the Basics.

Regards,
Hunaidkhan
