My partner is trying to make a career pivot. He is a buyer but has taken some courses to pivot to data analytics. He has taken a SQL course and the Google Data Analytics Cert course. He also is volunteering for a nonprofit doing some basic data tasks, like data cleaning, etc. Next, he will do his capstone project for the data analytics certificate.
I'm wondering if there are any folks out there with advice for him on how to get more hands-on experience and even a job?? Has anyone else pivoted into this field with zero experience before and maybe have some feedback?
