It will complement a lot if u learn Data Analytics using SQL and Data visualisation using power bi or tableau. May also learn advance excel too.

Don't dwell more into data science or machine learning coz it requires deep understanding of stats and prob , also requires a good hold on python or R.

Complement with what exactly? Sorry getting bit confused

It's always good to learn analytics if not core AIML.

Learn PowerBi/ Tableau + SQL to begin with. You can get into Data Analyst/ Biz Analyst roles.

Thanks guys for your responses. Shall i assume that I should learn powerbi/tableau to upskill and not go deep into AIML?

I am tired(or jealous) or hearing tier-2 grads getting hired with 20-30 LPA.

When I was switching in May, some HRs(from PwC and L&T) had told that they won't be able to continue with me, since my existing offer and expectation exceeded what they can offer for a 3y exp, which was mere 15 LPA though.

So, how do these freshers (not from NITs or IITs mind you) get hired before even getting out of the college or 1-1.5 year exps, get hired with upwards of 30 LPA? Where can I find such jobs?
