I feel like you should do it now. A lot of FA roles need someone with FA experience so it’ll be even harder to jump to a SFA role without any. It can be done but it’ll def be harder and you’ll have to sell yourself very well.

I’m having impostor syndrome when it comes to being a data scientist/ analyst because I’ve never been put in a role where my organization wants me to build ml or stat models. Is this norm?

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
