Any advice on how to be a good SME on a data science team? I started a new position as a data scientist and I wish I had some more guidance on how to do well. I am the SME on the team. I feel like I am struggling communicating with the software developers and data engineers.

What are you struggling with specifically?

I am new to tech. I am a career changer from working in public service. Although, I did do a certificate in data science at a good school. It is still a bit of a learning curve transitioning from nontech roles to data science. I feel like my team doesn't understand me and I don't understand them.

Pick your stakeholders’ brains to identify what their goals are. Then come up with a plan to achieve that

Senior up for promo to manager in audit in next year. Have decided I do not want to be an auditor. Which of these paths do you think is best? 1.

Exit immediately into industry to try for accounting manager title / senior accountant or sr fin analyst 4. Exit immediately to advisory senior at another big 4 firm
