Graduated with an undergrad in accounting from a really unknown school. Eventually got my first job in accounting (T&E,AP, AR, bankrec and so on). Working at this first job I realized I didn't like doing the basic journal entries. But inspiration from this jobs industry, I wanted to learn more about accounting systems/analytics.
So went for a graduate degree in data analytics/accounting information systems, but have not been able to pivot out of accounting roles. My job after that was consulting in internal audit then tax (both minor roles). Now currently I'm doing financial reporting, doing income statements/balance sheet and the like, but still not really data analytics.
How can I pivot my experience and primarily my education for a data analyst type position?
Currently trying to teach myself some python and R, which I did in my grad school courses but didn't go indepth. Grad school courses touched on Tableau, SPSS, R, SQL, and SAP (MM, PP, FI, CO, SD modules),
