Data science scene in India is not as mature as it is in US. In the name of Data science work, you will just be making reporting models or doing analytics for the business. There is little to no statistics involved in the roles in the majority of captives and forget about the mathematical arc you will expect in the role. You can also judge this by the questions the interviewers are asking for the role. In the name of mathematics, i was asked about the probability of 3 ants on triangle colliding with each other, if they can only move along the triangle edges. :/

Depends on company and job profile. Some companies would not screen you if they have a hard stop for Masters requirement. They would expect more work experience if that is not there. You might not get the dream companies and the dream domain with less experience, but you can get into such roles as everyone nowadays is opening up Data science roles in the name of riding the wave.But they don't pay the same as the bigger players and the work is also not that great.

I had an initial interview on Wednesday. About an hour later, I got a call from an internal recruiter from the same company wanting to follow up and see how the interview went.

Should I not try calling back again? I’ve been at my job for several years, so I am unfamiliar with how I should handle a situation like this.
