Tell us a bit about yourself
I started in the quality assurance field in IT , had background in SQL, Java languages, different experience in tech , retail and government sectors
Why did you choose the field of data analytics/business intelligence?
It was a trending industry and seemed to be very interesting and exciting, completely a new world that I wonder [how it would be] like to explore!
Do you have any pivotal/memorable event to share from your life that lead to what you are doing now?
I started to do some side projects for some [developer] after which I became quite interested in the programming field and would definitely want to combine that with visualization tools to make powerful statements!
Would you share some previous worries related to your career that you would tell your past self not to be nervous about and face it head on?
I was worried about finding work in the industry with no background in data analytics
Any words of encouragement/advice for current and future students looking to enter the field of analytics?
Work on the projects and become very comfortable with the tools. Practice practice and you will be ready 🙂

Can you provide us with any insight into how the interview process was like?
The first interview was easy. They were basically interested in your personality. The second interview was a little more hands on. They made me create a pivot table and do a few xlookups. The last interview was with the IT director. He first wanted to see what I was like and then asked me to make a query in SQL.
