Contract work is out of control. I'm tired of getting contacted for 6 month contracts. Why would I leave a 15 year career at a major university to go work for less with a company that is too risk adverse to even bring on FTEs?

I'm looking for growth opportunities but I'm not trying to jump off a cliff.

The risk definitely seems higher than any reward with those short-term contracted positions. I’ve been seeing more of them out there too.

I don’t know why growth suddenly has to equal huge amounts of risk. Glad I’m not the only one noticing this though.

I get frustrated getting those calls/emls as well but they are comforting in a sense. I know that I can find "something" if things at current job go wrong.

You just answered your own question in that last sentence. Cant have your cake and eat it too

Can’t stop thinking of reaching out and need strength to just stay with the loneliness and have hope for the better times. Would appreciate support. It’s been 2 weeks but I feel bouts of extreme sadness and desire to have someone to share my life and days with.

Hello I am curious to know what people think of getting a masters degree in Data Science. I am looking at a program that is 32k which compared to others is not as expensive. I have experience with python and I work on my own projects but no professional experience. I am finding it extremely hard to break into an entry level data analyst role. I am hoping that a master degree would help with that process.
