Request for guidance in career transition to Data Analytics


#1

Hi,

Thanks for reading this thread. I am thinking of career transition to Data Analytics and I need guidance.

I have 10 years of experience in Sales and Business Development. I do not have experience in IT field, majority of my experience is in Industrial sector like Power and Oil & Gas. On education front, I have done MBA in Marketing and B.E. Mechanical Engineering. I am earning Rs. 15 Lacs per year.

I am very good at Maths and especially in statistics. That’s what I have strong inclination towards Data Scientist career. But for practical reasons and my career situation, I am confused.

I need very honest and straight-forward advise;

  1. Can I pursue career in Data Analytics at this stage of my career? Is it worthy enough to start something new from scratch?
  2. Do I need to start as a fresher in Data Analytics field? Will there be any impact on my salary?
  3. Which courses should I consider, in case I decide to move ahead?

Your help is much appreciated!

Thank You!

Best Regards,
Kunal Rane
