Hi. I am currently working in Support for the past two years. I am currently pursuing my PGP in Data Science and Business Analytics. I was wondering how I could make a switch to any consulting company for data science (I have McKinsey in my mind), as I do not have any prior experience with data science or working in any such projects.

Seriously McKinsey&company? I want to join Richard Branson on space mission July 22. Want some advice. Just a quick tip. Equal opportunity employer thing is not in India. Just on papers. Although you will have great skills, they won't consider. In 4-5 weeks, you will receive an email saying your skills and resume was very competitive but we decided not to move forward. Quick tip: don't try to apply at any company career portal. You will end with same message as above. I tried a referral it worked. Fishbowl ,linkedin is a great tool. Harness this.
