I tell you, career Gap is just a Professional Stain. Practically it doesn’t matter. What matters is your skills. I myself learned a little about this and since I had a gap in my career, it did help in boosting up my career. To start your career again, firstly you should have these qualities:
- Good Knowledge of Domain Subject.
- Excellent Communication Skills.
- Confidence level.
As you are going to start your career with a computer-background, I would suggest you start with technologies like JAVA or PYTHON. About DATA SCIENCE that you can figure out later, first you can start with something which is in business now. You can learn JAVA or PYTHON with the help of online videos and blogs. Once you get the expertise regarding these technologies, you can start your career from your home itself. There are many 3rd party freelancing firms who provide teaching profession from your home itself and they pay you well. With these, you will be able to manage both your profession and personal life.
Once you get back your pace, then according to that you can think about what future goals.
I hope this information will be helpful for you, happy learning.
