I really appreciate this website, I had a question to ask you about my confusion with my career.
I have done Bsc in biotechnology and MBA biotech from Amity university, Noida. I have 4 years of experience in healthcare sales in a medical device company, but I want to shift my career to analytics.
Efforts till date:
I started with taking MOOC Statistics for Business from IIM Bangalore (Covered Descriptive stats using Excel), Analytics Edge MIT USA (Using R for data visualization, regression analysis, clustering,Trees,Text Analytics)
then I tried for jobs in the market.
During my job search, I realized that the job market is obsessed with SAS, I have now started foundation course in Data Science with SAS from Jigsaw Academy.
But I am worried that most of the jobs are seeking either experience of least 2 years or IIM, IIT pass outs or campus placements but starting career as fresher is very tough. Can you guide me is my decision is right to move to analytics since I am very passionate about it and, how should I approach if it is right!
