Is a master of data science worth it or am I better off just using something like data camp?

What’re you hoping to get ? Promo, switch tracks to a more technical role & career path, client credibility? A masters will not help with any of those. A PhD might. So save yourself the time and $ and self teach and/or do a bootcamp.

If you weren’t at D and trying to get into an entry-mid level analytics position I think having a masters would help get your foot through the door.
But I assume you already got in. It was Harvard’s loss 😝 but I digress

Do mooc courses on analytics. Show it to get into a project and then use the experience to exit.

Just got one. It was cheap, provided structure I wouldn’t have had otherwise, and I learned a few things, conceptually speaking, that I don’t think I would’ve learned through self-teaching. I’ll leverage it this year for a higher raise. To me, it seems worth it. But only because it was less than $15K altogether.

Feel free to DM if you have any other questions

My contract was slated to end & manager cited “feedback” issues, but managers boss asked to connect with me & mentioned product merger resulted in a surplus of headcount & asked me to keep in touch and offered to be helpful and a resource after I leave the company. My contract was also extended a few weeks. I had a really positive working experience with only a couple of newbie hiccups at the start of my contract. What should I think of this?

My last round was on Friday, still waiting to hear back (they said they would reach out this week) is this a bad sign?

Hello !
I am a B.Tech graduate with 8 years of working experience and looking for a change. What do you think is a decent package that the market should offer for an individual with this experience. I would appreciate if you can let me the organization and the designation as well.

Ex: Deloitte - Con - 12 LPA

P.S. - I have kept the question generic without disclosing my current package as I don't want the response to be based on what should I be expecting with respect to my current package.
