Hi Fishies, can anyone help me in understanding how I can get a break through in the field of analytics? I'm from a different industry and want to switch into analytics, have done a few basic courses, but how do I move past the hurdle of all companies seeking experienced people?
Any insight and suggestion would be helpful!

I don't know from which field you are but your best bet would be to try in your own domain. For example if you are in marketing, look for a marketing team which is hiring analyst and apply there. First try to look in your own organisation.
Skill wise you can check with your inhouse analytics team what they need. In general, knowing sql and excel should be good enough. Also do practice some case studies

Oh just saw you work at pwc, they do have analysts
