I am a graduate in BA Psychology and also completed one year diploma in software engineering from NIIT Pune.
Then i started working in an International bpo, a shipping company named Maersk line, but due to some reason i left this job.
Now i am working in a KPO as a Data Analyst and i want to establish my career as a Analyst.
So, I want to learn some advanced courses like advanced excel, database languages but i am confused about how I can manage all this.
Ok, I would like to know the future prospects for a data analyst after 1 year in the industry and I would like to know if I can do a get better job in any MNC???
The Future of Data Analysts
Your future as a data analyst is what you make out of it
Your future as a data analyst depends on how passionate you are about the industry.
Anyone can succeed in any career if they are really passionate about that industry or career.
If you are not passionate about a career or a job and you get into that industry, you may still fail because you lack the talents, abilities, interests or motivation to succeed in that industry!
Your future depends on whether you love being a data analyst
Start by answering this question: "do you love data analysis?".
If you don\'t love data analysis then the future of that entire industry is of no relevance to you.
You can earn or make money in any career or industry if you are willing to work very hard.
You will only be willing to work hard in a job if you love that job otherwise you will just want to put in an 8 to 5 effort and then go home, hoping to succeed!
Do what you love and the money will follow
Don\'t waste your time looking for a job where you are guaranteed an income, look for a job that you love and you will earn the income that you deserve.
Every career or industry requires hard work to succeed. If you love data analysis and you work hard as a data analyst, you will succeed at earning a good income.
Choose a career based on your personal abilities and skills. If you don\'t have the skills to succeed at a job (computer programming, business analysis, etc.), then you will fail even though others are making money at that industry.
Your future as a data analyst depends more on your skills, strengths, work ethic, education, motivation, interest, determination which are all intrinsic factors than on extrinsic factors like the employment trends or number of jobs in the industry.
One of the reasons why your future depends more on intrinsic personal abilities than on extrinsic factors (like job outlook) is that competition works against you.
If the data analyst industry experiences a boom for example, there would be lots of professionals applying for data analyst jobs and if the industry is retrenching then there would be fewer professionals wanting to be data analysts.
So regardless of whether there are lots of jobs in the data analysts industry or fewer jobs, what matters is your willingness to succeed as a data analyst and not on the fluctuating employment statistics which is not really within your control.
Take a Long Term Look And Interest In Data Analysis
Take a long term interest in the data analysis career or industry and not a short-term one (1) year interest.
One (1) year is too short a time to invest in your career and you should not get into an industry or career with the mindset that if you don\'t succeed within a year, you will just check out and invest in another industry!
