Hello People out there!
I have a decision to make and looking for some hints.
I can apply myself for one of the three following courses :
-python and SQL
I have the main pros and contras collected to help to describe the vectors of the priorities:
pro: quick skillset perfecting by being a part of expert team as a newbie, most universal education with many opportunities for specialization after, but now the thing is about the exact course
I even read some opinions which told even more worthy knowledge at automation as Python and SQL specialization itself, I can’t tell if it is true or not
contra: as far as my experiences shows (know and knew a few pro) and blogs tells, if I don’t want to stuck after school for forever in the “worker ant” status (even if I find coding is a very interesting thing, I can imagine after a while the most have a wish for promotion) , the way up leads more into HR management direction and it is very much not the way I can imagine myself to follow it
pro: I find the field being very interesting, I can imagine it could keep my interest and I would love my job a lot
contra: as far I could read about, slots occupied in big corporations, not much chance without experience catch a position at such place and small companies hire very few data scientist, in most case only one, so evolving in profession goes trough autodidact ways, which is obviously way slower and heavier as learn from experts in a team, also not much possibility in the newbie age ask expert opinion about the work which done
Of course in a few years it could change, if someone have about actual knowledge to assure me I don’t need to worry about the thing, it would make the decision easier.
- Python ans SQL:
pro: probably a comfortable work after all?
contra: is that comfortable work being even monotone too? if I can avoid and my situation right now give me this luxury, I would avoid having a monotone job in the future. I could imagine having interest at the research field, but afraid most of the jobs more about industrial operational fields
So if anyone with experience could leave me a few advices about the things it would be great, but already thanks to You all who got this far with a reading!
Have a great day all of You!
