Event Details

In the past two years, we have held over a hundred meetups with a variety of topics in Canadian data science job market trying to help people understand the market and land their dream jobs. We have taught hundreds of data science enthusiasts SQL, Python, Machine Learning, Big data and all the other skills required to become a data scientist. However, we found out there are many other factors may avoid you from getting your dream offers. 

This January, WeCloudData is going to hold a series of meetups on how to land a data scientist job in Canada. The topics will cover what is a data scientist job, data scientist job market, how to better prepare for data scientist jobs, and so on. We have also invited hiring managers from different industries, for example, banking, telecommunication, software, and retailing to talk about what's their expectation from a data scientist candidate.

 "There’s a lot of interest in becoming a data scientist, and for good reasons: high impact, high job satisfaction, high salaries, high demand... 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."

Monica Rogati, Data Science advisor
