Description

Info Session @ Bitmaker General Assembly: Data Science

During this event, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of our students’ journeys to shift their careers to the data science realm. The night will consist of the chance to chat with our Admissions team, a course instructor, and the career coach.

This is a great way to:

  • Get to know a Data Science instructor. They'll share their insights on our curriculum, teaching philosophy, and in-class mentorship
  • Understand the admissions process, including what we look for in students and what can influence student success
  • Meet our Career Coach, Alyx, who will explain how she supports your career search during and after the program to help you get your first data role after graduation

Bring your questions! We want you to come away knowing what your life in and post-Bitmaker could be.
