I recently started to date again and I’m currently dating someone who’s finishing up his masters in data science. I do some data analytics in my role (well my title for my client says data analytics consultant) but I work in strategy. He keeps asking me complex data science/data analytics questions (even tho he knows I don’t have a background in it) and jokes about if I even know what I’m doing at work. Am I taking this too seriously or is he always trying to put me down?

Hey all - curious to learn more about independent consulting (doing your own thing vs. working at a firm). Can anyone here speak to this, specifically touching on: - is there a lot of market demand? What type of consulting is most prevalent, is it only specialized knowledge areas? - how did you get started? - how does it compare to working at a firm, say MBB, in terms of comp, WLB, etc. Thanks for any insights!
