I've been working on changing my career, taking classes and trying to get projects at work that are outside my normal responsibilities.
I currently help new customers build implementation plans and run trainings, but have been getting my hands on projects involving data visualization, as well as taking math and programming classes. I'm interested in a variety of jobs where I get to work with data, and I have no desire to use my skills that involve interacting with people. Consider something like data analytics a good goal, though in reality I suspect there are several jobs I'd be happy with (hence the need for a broader resource).
What I have trouble navigating are the types of jobs I could be considered qualified for now that, with several hops, can get me towards the jobs I eventually want.
Also, for the sake of this question, assume anything internal to my current company is closed to me. My boss wants me on a much different career path than what I've chosen, and things turned a little hostile for a while when I turned him down.
What are some vetted resources that will help me understand the progression of jobs needed to get into a specific career involving data visualization \ sciences?
