Student Hiring Frenzy

Posted on Aug 21, 2015

On Tuesday, August 11th, over 30 hiring managers and HR professionals in several industries joined our Students and Employers Networking Events. Our graduates had a great time meeting potential employers and talking about their data science projects and employment interests in person. The party lasted well past 11:00pm, which is late for us here at NYC Data Science Academy, but we were having too good of time to stop.

“I spoke with recruiters from Goldman Sachs, HBO, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, all in one night. ” - Alejandra

“The access to employers here at this first event was out of this world - I need to get business cards.” - Luke

This event kicks off our two week recruiting sprint here at the school, where matchmaking between students and employers takes place. We have partnered with diverse companies from small startups to large corporations to help place our students in positions just right for them. The first few events are informal and over drinks, then our Placement Staff schedule one-on-one interviews.

We don't charge a fee for graduate recruitment. If you are interested in hiring data scientists from us, please take a look at the hiring partner page or you can fill in the form here.

My little dahcuhsnd eats all manner of little critters from the yard. Cicadas, chameleons, beetles of various kinds (though she does not like the green shield-shaped ones.) A housefly appearing indoors keeps her on the alert for hours. Even if she does not catch it herself, she'll eat it when I kill it. Snakes are a different thing. Sometimes she finds a little one, and before it scurries under the wood chips or behind a rock, she will poke at it a bit with her nose, but she doesn't try to eat them. Maybe it's respect, maybe it's fear, maybe there's an innate knowledge that snakes are not as tasty as the common fly. However, I am confident that if a python were to show up in the yard, the dog would be very interested. If she understood the danger posed by the thing, she'd call over the hated cats from across the street and invite them into the waiting coils of the python. More likely than not, she'd bark an poke her nose at it and it would ignore her thoroughly. A book on python would be even less welcome. My readings of VBA books to her have fallen flat. Reading in general leaves her bored and asking for a snack (for a dog does not live on flies alone.) She doesn't even care for read-alouds of The Decline and Fall, so she's obviously a philistine. And yet, I'd relish this python book for all the reasons she'd hate it.
