I’m interviewing for a Data Science Associate role at a mid size fin tech right now. Afraid to make the jump as I’m only a few months into first strategy job. Feel like I’ll be around more high achievers in consulting, but if in the end everyone (an exaggeration) is trying to funnel into product management, should I jump ahead of the curve?
