Can anyone help me with a referral for Data science role? I'm actively looking for it.


Hi Fishes,
I have recently joined Axis corporate office virtually on 29th March 2022. I have keen interest and hence wanted to pursue Data Science and ML journey because im more or a technical guy. I have 2 years and 3 months of experience in the same. As the Notice Period ended, I joined Axis. But I’m thinking the BA role i have in here is a non technical one. What should i do?

I’m pretty confused. It’s few days only but i don’t know I’m not getting a good feeling now.

Please help.

I think I have too much free time during working hours and can start freelancing as second source of income. Any leads please .
