My Bachelor's Degree is in Business Administration. I never really had an interest in Statistics, Finance or Economics as I was keen on looking for a job in Marketing / Management. To this end I got a job as a Management Consultant at a Boutique Consulting firm that specializes in marketing and brand strategies. I quit 18 months later due to personal reasons related to certain coworkers. After this I found a new job at a Market Research company as a consultant / international salesman, and while the job wasn't completely in line with my previous job, it wasn't anything too difficult for me to handle. I was forced to quit 6 months later due to mishaps with my work visa, and now I found a job at yet another consulting company.
Unlike my previous jobs however, this job requires extensive knowledge and skill in coding (SAS and Python in particular) as clients are mostly financial institutions that depend on my company to develop custom credit scorecards for them. I was already second guessing myself during my interview and flat out told the interviewer that I had almost no background in statistics and absolutely know nothing about coding, and yet they hired me anyway. Now that I'm on my first project, I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing. None of my coworkers are giving me any form of guidance, and though my supervisor doesn't really give me any tasks that I can't manage, there's no way I'd feel comfortable with sitting around on my hands doing nothing. I'm devoting almost all of my spare time to learning to code in SAS and Python, but progress is slow.
All of my superiors (including my boss) are well aware of the fact that I have next to no knowledge of coding and statistics, which is why I have no inkling of an idea as to why I was hired for this particular job.
TLDR: I was hired by a company that is fully aware of the fact that I have no experience or knowledge in their field. What should I do?
