Event description

Description

The hardest thing in job-hunting is that you never get honest feedback from hiring managers. While rejected by emails with "we have selected the candidate whom we believe most closely matches the job requirements of the position.", you don't know what exactly you did wrong. Ever wondered what goes through the hiring manager’s head when you’re being interviewed? In this workshop, we invited Mr. Shaohua Zhang and Mr. Leotis Buchanan to shed some light on that question.


Speaker:

Shaohua Zhang

Shaohua Zhang over ten years of experience in applied data science and has built a reputation for building high-performance data science teams. He is currently the cofounder of two startup companies in the data field, WeCloudData and iFuture.

Prior to Kik, he built a high-performance data science team at BlackBerry that focused on building innovative data science solutions for marketing, CRM, and product teams. He specializes in user interest graph, targeted advertising, scalable location intelligence, and large-scale recommendation engines for mobile personalization. He has also got patent in the user interest graph from USPTO.



The workshop will cover the following topics:

- Difference among data scientist, data analyst, and data engineer

- Data science job market

- What are the required hard skills
