"Why data science as a career" - Attractive packages is one of the worst answers I have heard!

An interviewer, especially in an HR interview, a question might come up “Why do you want to choose data science as your career?”.

Though no one directly indicates attractive packages, this is what most of the job seekers give impression to the interviewers. Whether or not you are answering this question in an interview, any answer that you give, even to yourself, should be indicating the passion towards the field.
