Hi Guys, I'm in my early career as a statistician. I have no clarity on what kind of problems I want to sove using my skills. How do statisticians or data scientists decide what industry they want to work? We cannot explore everything right?

Data scientists or statisticians are interested in solving problems involving data and science. Every industry has different use cases with varying difficulty that might require a data science solution.

So, don't think just jump into any industry to begin with, once you have developed some solutions then somewhere down the line you will have a better idea regarding which domain or industry has use cases that excites you, then focus on that.
