I am learning Big Data at the moment, and have knowledge of Python and ML, AI, SQL, Tableau.

Have no knowledge of DSA though.

YOE 5 years. What are the next skills that I can aim for to get a much higher CTC, or is this enough and more practice and projects are enough?

Thanks in advance.

My core skills are Kubernetes, Containers, Advanced Architectures, and Process Optimization (DevOps). I feel like my salary, good as it is, is not up to par with the market. Friend of mine at Google makes close to 190k with much of the same. Thoughts?

Hello Everyone,

I interviewed at a product based company and went through all the rounds except the final HR round. The general consensus I got from the panel in the final round was that I have done well and HR will contact me. But a day later I get an email saying that my application has been put on hold after deliberation from the BU and they will reach out soon.

This is the first time I'm interviewing to change organizations so I am pretty confused if this means their way of rejection?
