Sourav Karmakar, now a thriving data scientist at Tiger Analytics, has significantly increased his salary, nearly six times his previous earnings. Beginning as an electrical engineering graduate, he started his career as a support executive at TCS with a mere salary. After feeling stuck due to monotonous work and limited growth, he switched to Cognizant. However, similar work culture and rigid hours prompted him to explore alternatives. Learning Python during bench time, he became passionate about the language and transitioned to data science. Sourav's journey was supported by OdinSchool BootCamp, helping him excel in his subjects and job interviews. He advises fellow data science aspirants to overcome educational background hurdles with dedication and effort.
