Learn sql and Python. Don’t even worry about AWS until you know some open source tools. Look at maybe doing a boot camp of some kind given your industry pivot which could help make up for any lack of industry experience that would show upon your resume

Would also add in regards to Bootcamps, most offer great networking opportunities to get your foot in the door.

Oh, and please ignore the title. It wasn't giving me options and I'm still trying to fix it

While I am not opposed to learning those, I am currently in a position where I need to get a job soon. Any recommendations for that?

Btw, I forgot to mention that I am doing an MBA currently with Project Management specialization. That's probably important info

I’d try applying to smaller shops and working your way up. I’m a fairly new grad who started in advertising analytics and now work in ops analytics for a major airline. A lot of my earlier jobs gave me exposure to a lot of the tools I use now. Big thing for you is going to be networking. What city are you in?

Houston Texas

Hi, I need your honest opinion on this. Currently I have done AWS cloud practitioner certificate and want to progress but I don't think to like Solution Architect that much, I feel it will be boring for me. I love to create things, and love data manipulation, so I found this course in Google data engineer + AI... I feel it might be good fit for me. What do you think about it. Am looking for something I can study and stick with it long run. Thanks 😊.
