Hey guys. So I am an actuarial analyst who got started about three months ago. I had a chance to do a data scientist intern, which I really loved. I am three months into the full time position as an actuarial analyst and I am finding the job not as exciting. It certainly isn’t what I have expected. Does anyone have any experience of moving out of the actuarial world to the data science role? How hard was the transition? What are the steps that you took? I am seeking for advice and help! Thanks!
