When you’re in search of your next job opportunity in data science, even if you’re only looking to do so passively, there are a few things that you’ll want to consider if you want to get the most out of your job search. Any causal online search will give you a variety of conflicting pieces of advice that all claim to be the so-called “silver bullet” of any job search.  The truth is, there is no such thing, and that’s why ODSC has a variety of programs and opportunities geared to data professionals no matter their level or what stage in the search they’re in. 

So let’s take a look at a few things that ODSC East has that will supercharge your job search and take it to the next level. 

Career Sessions

There are three key career sessions happening at ODSC East that not only provide strategic insights into the job hunt, economy, and what companies are looking for, but they also provide you with vast opportunities to learn the tools they’re all talking about!

First up is “Ace the Data Job Hunt.” Enjoy an insightful session from Ex-Facebook/Google Enineer and best-selling author Nick Singh. Here he’ll give you not only some tools to supercharge that resume but also teach you six critical mistakes to avoid when you’re ready to tackle the job hunt. Of course, the session will have a bit more but you’ll have to check it out for yourself!

So you got in? What many sessions and speakers often miss is the critical details surrounding data culture within organizations. In Vatsala Sarathy’s session “Data-curiosity: How to Create and Nurture a Data-curious Culture in your Organization” she brings her expertise in management and strategy to help you understand common challenges organizations face when it comes to their data. If you’re looking to win over the higher-ups, this a great session to engage in so you can be part of the problem-solving squad at your next job.  

Finally, there is Anna Jung, Sr. ML Open Source Engineer at WMware’s session “Do You Know About the People Behind The Tools?” With the rapid growth and adoption of machine learning across industries, the dependency on open-source communities by many large organizations will continue to grow. Learn how both co-exist and what it means to be part of the ML open-source community.
