Data Analyst vs Data Scientist choice



Jun 20, 2018 3 Comments

Asking for a friend who is looking to make a career change. She is a database developer and as the gigs are running low, wants to switch over to one of the above roles. Can someone who has experience in these fields, share some thoughts on the easiness to adapt, TC etc?

    1. Ease to get in: data analyst > data scientist
    2. Tc: scientist > analyst
    3. Skillsets: scientist > analyst (relates to above 2 points)
    4. Work quality: both are shitty anyway
    5. Competition: scientist > analyst

    In short, if she is starting new, get into a data analyst role in a company that allows easy internal movement, then switch to data scientist role within the organization.
