Yes! Big Data was and will always be my first choice whenever I am talking about a career in the world of technologies.
Well, I can give you a long answer to this but the perfect answer to why I chose it is - Big Data is the future and everybody wants a growing and secure future. So, why not me?
When I took a look at the industry I was searching for something that industry needed. And at every point, I found Big Data. I started reading and soon Big Data grabbed my interest. It is a bundle of career opportunities where you will never face any trouble. These observations were enough for me to make it the only choice for my career.
What was the incident that forced you to switch career in Big Data?
I was looking for a career change because I wanted to keep up with where the IT industry is moving. Also, I was not enjoying my job and felt a need that I should use my skills and hard work in any other technology. Work which not only provides me a good salary but can make my future.
Then I decided to make a switch.
