Since data science has become one of the hottest sectors in the country, people are switching their career to become a data scientist. However, for experienced professionals, it isn’t as easy that many online gurus seem to preach.
There are numerous factors that come into play and lead to a lot of failures in their road to changing career. For one, organisations often do not prefer to take experienced software engineers or developers into a mid or senior-level data science position. This is mainly due to the fact that they lack the ability to convert business challenges into data science problems, thereby, failing to mitigate obstacles and help firms in its growth. It also doesn’t help that they already have hefty salary packages.
