Share Data Science Career Panel Discussion - What Hiring Managers Want From You

Event Details

There’s a lot of interest in becoming a data scientist, and for good reasons: high impact, high job satisfaction, high salaries, high demand... Data Scientist is even considered as one of the sexiest jobs in the 21st century. Since this is a relatively new role and there’s no universal agreement on what a data scientist does, it’s difficult for a beginner to know where to start, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. 

Join us for a Data Science Panel Discussion where expert data scientists and hiring managers will share their experience of solving real-world data science challenges and their expectations from a data scientist candidate. 

Panel Discussion Topics

- Different types of data science jobs

- Data Science job trends in Toronto

- Specific data challenges the panelists to tackle every day in retail, banking, telecom, and startups

- A day in the life of a data scientist

- Hiring manager expectations from a data scientist candidate

- How to get prepared for data science jobs

- Advice to those who want to get into data science
