I would say any type of data analysis course could help. It really depends on the data you’re looking at and what you want to do with it. There is a pretty decent course on Coursera by the Macquarie University and one by PwC. I don’t remember the names but if you just type in data analysis, they should show up.

Thanks! Appreciate you taking the time to post this. I’ll look it up 👍

Iqvia doesn't allow external vendors like coursera or udemy to give courses on its data. Does your firm or client purchase IQVIA data? Ask them to train you.

I have got offer from wipro ...I have been selected in bulk hiring..... And HR said that you will be on bench for 2 weeks and then you will be given option to select project.

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?

Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me.

I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.
