You don’t want to be in “data science” at big 4, it’s all fluff. You go start ups or fin tech

Yes, Very possible

It's possible, depending on you having skills though.

Hi there. I have a friend at my firm who successfully pulled off exactly this kind of transition. We're hiring into our data analytics team now and are interested in people from a range of technical backgrounds. We should definitely discuss if you're looking to be in an analytics role.

I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
