Lol!!! So true.

🤔 if you have a CS degree why don’t you switch to software engineer. DS is a rabbit hole when you go deep. It’s not easier than SWE.

My degree is a specialization in Machine Learning / AI! My CS skills aren't great... my Bachelors was in a different stem field so my cs fundamentals are weaker than most. Most of my skillset carries over to DS rather than SWE

My personal goal is to have my own start up, so I seek new knowledge domains and don't really go deep into them. If your goal is to work in big tech, you will need to pick a field and specialize. What I mean is: what is your goal? Do you want a small start up that requires more general skillsets or knowing many things or do you want to be in a big, established firm?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
