A male devotee (Name hidden on request) asked like this:
“Please Don’t Reveal My Name. Sir I Want To Become Data Scientist. But This Career Is Full Of Thinking To Much Material. How Can I Remember Shree Krishna All Time And Be Peaceful.”
Ha Ha…Our devotees sometimes think too much.

Working thinking of Krishna is not possible in all kinds of jobs. Some jobs may need extraordinary attention. If the attention is diverted, it may even lead to an accident.
For example, a driver of a bus or car or Plane should always be attentive to avoid accidents.
A worker in a big boiler or any other machinery should always be careful in performing his duties.
A Programer should write and test the programs with great attention.
Such workers who are doing sensitive jobs can’t work thinking of Krishna.
Because, actual THINKING means, immersing in the thoughts of Krishna.
When we immerse in the thoughts of Krishna, we may commit mistakes in such sensitive jobs.

Only in the passive or non sensitive jobs, we can work thinking of Krishna.
What to do in such cases?
We can WORK FOR KRISHNA.
What is the difference between Performing assigned duties THINKING OF KRISHNA (and) FOR KRISHNA?
We have already seen working THINKING OF KRISHNA.
Working FOR KRISHNA means offering the results to Krishna.
You need not offer everything you earn for Krishna. Just keep sufficient part of your earnings for your family maintenance, future savings for the genuine expenses such as the children’s studies, home, medical expenses, etc and spend the remaining part of your income for the service of Krishna.
This is enough.

Work in a legal job as sincerely and effectively as possible, earn, manage your life and future and also spend to serve Krishna.
In your case, you fear whether you can think of Krishna if you take the job of Data Scientist. Yes, it is a sensitive job, no doubt in it.
However, it is a legal job that you can take. Perform your duties as sincerely as possible and spend a part of it for the service to Krishna.
While starting for work, chant. Whenever you get a gap in the middle of Job, chant. Thus, chant and remember Krishna in the breaks. Then, use that job and its earning to serve the Lord.
Thus, you can WORK FOR KRISHNA, if you are unable to THINKING KRISHNA WHILE WORKING.
Hope you are clear about remembering Krishna in a sensitive job.
