Suresh: I have been a staffing professional throughout my career. The current trend of data analytics got me interested in data science and machine learning. Having 20 years of experience in the industry, I’ve seen the complete lifecycle of recruitment, project management, etc. So, I thought data science and machine learning would be an advantage for me to get into this domain and go for a career transition. So, I chose to study for the data science tutorial course that I have chosen for at INSAID.
