I worked with SQL, Python, R, Tableau, Alteryx, VBA, data management, and relational databases

or whats an good bootcamp i can do online thatll get companies to not push my resume to the side.

im interested in doing data science, Machine learning, data engineering, and backend development as a long term career but id start with analytics and work my way up.

    Get an analyst position at one of the big tech companies. Then learn DS on the side while making good money there. Eventually ask them to interview for DS. That’s what I did at uber, was an Econ undergrad major and went from biz analyst to data scientist. If you learn the skills, people won’t care about your degree! Good luck

      Plus you already have KPMG (consulting or audit?) on your record which is good

    Those are hard to learn on the job. I’d recommend going back to school if you want to do that track. Berkeley has a great masters program for DS—one of the only programs that’s specifically for data science. Stanford also has a stats masters.

    If you want to just get hired as an analyst, your current skillset is probably fine, though a Bootcamp could be helpful if you need to up level
    Your proficiency. Or just do some datacamp courses online. Much cheaper!

    Good Luck!
