Saw a job I liked but on the application it asked if i have experience in python. I’ve only ever used R (and SQL, Access/Excel, SAS and a host of BI/Viz/Reporting tools). Bad idea to click yes?

I just accepted offer from a job that “requires” Python. I told every interviewer that I can’t wait to learn Python, and they loved me.

JP Morgan Chase? The role I’m talking about is there Lolol

most jobs I've seen require either Python OR R (not a requirement to know one over the other). and even then if you don't know either, show interest in learning and have a great resume otherwise you're still solid!

Position prob closes soon bc it’s been up a while. I don’t have time to go learn python right now (family stuff takes up all my free time). In R I can read in csv and excels as dataframes, clean/manipulate/reformat them, do initial exploratory analysis, etc... and write it back out to another flat file. I use dplyr and tidyr mostly.

My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣

Started freelancing last year after being laid off and have been trying to make short term stints work until I find the right gig. However, I feel that most opportunities I can get end up being less than ideal. Dry clients (pharma), chaotic schedules and supplemental work that would never make my portfolio. Debating taking a full time job I’m not that excited about just to get out of this cycle.... Not sure if freelancing just isn’t for me or it’s the current climate. Any advice?
