Hi everyone,

I have about 4.5 yoe in a reputed Internet company. I want to move further into analytics.

A lot of my work in the current role is on spreadsheets. I am fairly good with EDA on R and Python

The only thing I lack is SQL experience. I have learnt it online, the basic queries, joins etc. This gap is hindering my chances to get an interview.

I want to build some kind of a portfolio showcasing my SQL skills. Can anyone guide me /share prototypes around this area? Thank you!

Is there any chance that i can get a role of team lead in content moderation domain, as I have a PGDM, green belt and 4.8YOE in content moderation?
