Hope you did well. Reporting is no longer SAS and Microstrategy if your clients want actionable hypotheses driven insights. Knowing more than how to use R and Python, also knowing when and how the various models are applicable is critical.

Not my point MD1. My point is don’t interview me for a role I’m clearly not qualified for. How hard is it to read a resume? What a waste of my time.

Nice what company was that? We probably did a finance data and analytics transformation for them ;)

Post interview process - When the recruiter mentions a base salary range based on their historical data for the position and on my years of experience and this aligns with what I see in Glassdoor too, is this essentially locked in where I can’t negotiate the base salary outside of that range? Example: Recruiter says base salary range is 85-90k, but my target is 100k base, will they only offer 90k base max and try to meet my target with sign on bonus, etc?
