Is Data Science worth it guys? Literally everyone is becoming DS.

Turning 27 this year, I have 2.5 yoe as a Data Analyst now, I was planning to learn ML and learn business decision making to become a data scientist "for better pay"

But I'm just losing motivation these days, though I'm at such an age that switching to something else will not help financially either.

Any suggestions guys? Current ctc 9.5 , tech : python, psql, google apis, power bi, aws

@27 you're frustrated with life which means you don't have interest to learn anything. People @40 still have will power to learn things like DS, LLM, etc.

Hi Fishes,

Any idea about AD salary range in Axtria ?

I have been a little all over the place with what I wanted to do, but for last few years I have been learning digital marketing and I had knowledge of SQL in my academic years. However, I think I exaggerate my exprience because I desperately need a job. I have the knowledge and started saying that to companies, it didn't move forward after the recruiters interview. So I decided to exaggerate that yeah I have done because I actually been freelancing for digital marketing. Rest of post in comments
