I am a B.E Comp Science graduate passed out in 2010 and worked as ETL Tester in a MNC for 3 years and later made a domain shift and pursued Masters in Public Policy(M.A Degree) and now working as researcher in this domain. Have following queries
- Is there scope for data analysts in Social Science/ Public Policy in log term perspective? If yes how good is it in terms of career growth and remuneration compared to Business/ industry?
- If possible, kindly elaborate on career options for data analysts in Social Science/ Public Policy/ Consultancies (PwC, McKinsey etc) for a non-IIT, non-IIM post-graduate like me.
- Is it advisable to switch to Business Analytics completely or should i make a transition by spending more time in Social/Policy research into analytics (is there any scope for such transition?)
I would request people to respond as early as possible, as I am now in the middle of this career crossroads.
Thanks in Advance
