Anyone have advice on switching from consulting into tech? I’ve been with my current employer a little under a year. I’m thinking after my current project ends in August that I’ll start looking for tech jobs. I’d be looking for data science and data analytics roles.

Feel free to dm me. Have a number of data analytics and data science roles. With tech company looking to go public this year.

Look into the consulting or professional services groups within top tech companies and apply for those roles. They're usually more amenable for people looking to make the switch. Also, don't wait. It can take a while to find the right fit so look early and often.

+1, you need to apply quite a bit and show how your experience translates. I also think a lot of consulting folks end up in strategy because that's more welcoming to the consultant mindset

Bumping this- also interested

Are you looking to leave the consulting industry altogether? If not, you can apply for IT consultant roles on data analytics projects.

Probably. I’m already doing data science at an it consulting company.

Depending on your background I would take a look into some mini courses for DA and DS to see which you’d like more. Then I’d see if there were some courses or certificates for some for the tools and processes that they use. I’d also join a virtual or physical community in your area for tips/questions, job offers or just general support for the transition and work afterward. Lastly I’d definitely start looking and applying now August is just around the corner.
