Career growth in any field may sometimes take a very complex turn, and it might become very difficult for someone to determine the course of growth in the career path of a certain post. In the case of the career growth of data science and analytics professionals, it becomes even more difficult to examine how one grows in the field of data science since I have explained the career path of a data science and analytics professional to so many people that now I know how to explain it in the easiest terms. 

So we will categorize the level of expertise and qualification into three categories. I feel the easiest way is to differentiate on the basis of experience. So there are three levels: 

  1. Junior Level
  2. Middle Level
  3. Senior level

The junior level is the obvious one, which is the entry-level, or a person with less than 1 year of experience. That person is considered to be a junior-level professional. 

Next is the middle-level professional; the person at this level is considered to be a person holding more than 2 years of experience but less than 5 years of experience.

And finally, after having more than seven years of experience and developing a good amount of knowledge and expertise in the field, a person is promoted to the senior level. 

I am sure you must be wondering what the salaries are at these levels. See, the salary of an individual may vary on a lot of factors. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the skills and the knowledge of the person depend upon the post. On entry-level, skills are required, but after a certain amount of time, your experience and your knowledge are important. I may not be able to give you the exact salary, but I can give the range between which the individuals are paid. These are the expected pay range that a person can expect on the respective levels:

  1. Junior level: $25,000 - $37,000 per annum
  2. Middle level: $35,000 - $50,000 per annum
  3. Senior level: $40,000 - $65,000 per annum

All the figures that I have mentioned above are the average figures, and it is not compulsory that they will be the same in all the roles. Obviously, for a person who is highly skilled and possesses the right abilities, the sky is the limit. 

What do you think is the right way to judge a role, the expected salary structure, or the learning and experience that you will develop?
