As a technical consultant (data scientist), how important is it for you to develop relationships with clients in the specific industry you're interested in, like healthcare, as you move up? Or, is it enough to just build a track record of tech chops & impact at the VP/C-level of other industries, even if you don't have any personal rapport with clients to leverage?

Depends how technically strong you are and how much demand your niche has. Relationships become more important the more the previous two are lacking.

Relationships are everything. Knowing things is nice, knowing people is better.
I’ve sold work I had no right to because I developed a rep on other data science projects and I’ve not won work where I was perfect but they went with someone they knew.
This is true in any industry, dat science is no exception.

Relationships will only make your life easier. I could have a shit product but with the right people could get a lot of money thrown at it (quibi, WeWork, etc)

Relationship and communication are key to being a professional. You can be a genius but lacking those qualities will seriously harm you long term. Unless you are Zuckerberg, but even he got a lot of flack when he visited in DC

Hi all! If anyone needs HCM solutions for their business (ie payroll, 401k, worker’s compensation, or health and benefits) I would be happy to connect with you and help you get that in place!

Not sure if this has been discussed before, but what kind of health benefits do your firms offer? I’m at a small firm (<10 attorneys) and the firm covers all health insurance premiums for staff and associates (including spouse and family plans) and also covers half of our deductibles. We also get a fitness reimbursement up to $200 per month. Are those benefits standard across the industry?
