Currently in Finance (Director at a tech company) and looking to expand my skills and earning potential. For those working in data analytics now, do you think data analytics is symbiotic for someone in Finance? Anyone on your teams that has that background? Would hope it could contribute to my career path as it is now without being a full pivot to data having to start in an entry level role again :(

I made the full pivot from finance (M&A work) to data analytics and I can say the financial modeling and general quantitative aspect of the former was pretty complementary when I switched over. But I definitely think leaning into data can contribute to your career path without having to start over because data is everywhere and I’m positive you already work with data everyday even if you don’t have that title. Lean into your current skills and find similarities and I’m sure you’d be able to find a data role that isn’t too different from what you’re doing now

If you want to go into data science then yes you’re gonna see a lot more jd’s asking for a CS or engineering degree. With data analytics though the barriers to entry are definitely lower and I got this role just by being able to speak about 1 visualization project I’d done and saying I had some Python and general analytics courses in progress at the time I was interviewing

I did the opposite, went from data analytics to finance which I think makes a bit more sense since data is more broad. However I second the post above. Being able to think analytically is half the battle financial analysis have a lot of transferable skills you'll just have to learn the tools for data analytics.

Actually built a team at my last company building out a analytics team within finance. Pretty much help with everything from automation, analysis, forecasting, product analytics, running WBRs…it’s endless

Also I work in M&A analytics now that could be a good step into analytics that you can pivot into after. Most folks are a mix of analytics, finance, and accounting types
