Hi Kunal and everybody else,
I just read your book Kunal, its really good. Explains a lot of things in a simple language. I wanted to know a little more about what you think about the “non-technical data science roles” that you have talked about. Is it advisable for a person early in their career to work as a Technical Sales (Analytics) professional?
As you would know the work requires you to cater to clients and sell analytics products and services which best suits the need of the client. You will not need to get into the depth of the problem but basic knowledge of everything in the industry is what is needed to convince the client.
I personally feel you can shift into a technical sales role from a technical role 10 years down the line but vice-versa is not possible. What do you think?
