If you get really good at SQL Leetcode, does that translate to anything role wise? Analyst or Data scientist skills?

We have SQL readability for internal transfers too. Look it up on Moma. Re: your question, I see some T2 tech companies giving business intelligence/ data analysts SQL tests as part of the interview process. To be on the DS ladder at Google, you need stats too.

Thanks. I'm in a biz / pgm role and am solid at SQL. I really like it and was considering getting better but no interest in the super technical roles. Was wondering if there's any upside esp on the L5+ biz roles.

If you're looking for something more technical, I think data analyst would probably be your best bet in terms of your SQL knowledge. Data scientist might require some more technical skills with regards to machine learning, statistics, Python, etc.

For most data roles, SQL is a skillset that's firmly in the "necessary but not sufficient" category. With SQL, fancier Excel, and some case interview sense, you can pass for BI roles. Stuff like data analyst and data scientist will also require stats and some always unknown amount of ML and "regular language" leetcode, which aren't nearly as quick to learn. For DBA, you really need to learn the database tech and not just how to query. Closest to pure SQL will be some weirdly worded jobs with "analyst" in the name that say something like "data librarian" or focus on "reporting" in the description. Those are getting more and more outsourced though, since you can learn enough to do them in just a few days.

Recently got an offer in LCOL/MCOL for a senior tax accountant role for 87k. 3 years of public experience and have been in industry for almost a year. Current job pays about 5k more, but is a bit of a rarity in my city. New job’s team and culture are more appealing to me. Is the offer reasonable or should I try to negotiate? I’ve never negotiated before so I’m scared they might pull the offer. Thanks!

I think my friend is about to make a huge mistake and I need additional arguments for why the following is a bad idea: friend got an offer as an associate at an AmLaw 1000 firm (similar to Polsinelli) and an offer as a staff attorney at a non-market V100. Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.
