Joined D two months ago to be a data science person the work is not data science, I don’t care what anyone says or tries to make it. That being said what is the best cloud certification I should get to exit? I was thinking AWS machine learning certificate. What are your thoughts?

I’m confused.

1. What is it about the work you are doing that makes you think it’s not data science?

2. Why do you think you need an AWS certification in order to exit?

Were you a data scientist before? If yes, how did you exit from your previous firm to D?

If you still want to stay, you might have better luck with projects in enabling areas (e.g. assets). Feel free to DM me if interested.

Generally I'd say target CSPs and also packages (e.g. a certificate from fastAI). The accreditations tell orgs that you know the latest and greatest.
Honestly, I learned a lot of stuff without certifications since most of those are very basic. Building a small project is the way to go imo.

Certifications: GCP ML - best by ML tech, AWS - best by current market share, which is dropping. General note: in 95% of cases people who say they do data science work in consulting either have no idea what it is or work for very small pure tech consultancies. Consulting is not where you develop your data science skills. It is where they slowly deteriorate and you hope to make a buck off of it before your exit.
