Career guidance in doing a transition from QA to data science


I am currently working as a QA Engineer in an IT company and I am aware of data science and machine learning concepts (basics to intermediate level) but I am not having any real time work experience in the field. 

Because of this I am facing some difficulty in making a transition from QA to data science.

Can anyone please suggest or guide me on how to get real time work experience or any job opportunities if any? It would be really helpful
