I think this may be the ‘grass is greener’ sort of thing. What’s the reason for switching from PE (typically higher paid, less bullshit) to consulting?

Hi there- I am considering pursuing a certification in HR analytics or data analysis and visualization to enhance my data storytelling skills as an HR Business Partner. I have no prior data analytics experience aside from what I’ve learned on the job evaluating employee data (ie exit and engagement surveys) and making recommendations based on past experience. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations on leveraging this type of certificate in your role?
