How to Land a Data Science Job

Wednesday, October 14, 2020
5:30 pm to 6:45 pm

For MIMS, MIDS, and 5th Year MIDS students

If you’ve been wondering how to break into the data science field, don’t miss this panel event with I School alumni. They will share strategies learned during interviewing for internships and full-time jobs, what they’ve learned after working in the field, and will come ready to tackle your questions.

We’ll have multiple breakout rooms with different alumni, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask your questions.
