#EveryMonth - Data Science Careers: Entry points for students and postdocs

Note: Registration required (Register through Eventbrite)

This program is for UCSF students and postdocs only

Would you like to understand what people mean when they refer to a job in data science? Then join us for the first workshop of Data Science month! 

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

1.    Name the variety of careers in this work sector
2.    Name the entry points into a career working in data science
3.    Develop a strategy for positioning yourself for your next step, whether as a career explorer or someone ready to apply for data science positions

We'll be joined by representatives from the Insight Data Science Fellows Program, who will not only provide an overview of data science careers, but also of the programs they offer to students and postdocs.

Come to this session and leave with a little more information and the start of a plan! Whether you are just curious about the roles in data science or you are ready to apply for a job in data science, this is the session for you.
