Are you considering a career in data science but not sure what it really entails? Then this Career College could help you gain insight into the career opportunities related to data science / analytics.
With great pleasure we introduce our panel members:
• Rogier Verlinden – Team Lead & Data Scientist bij Adyen (Mathematics: Statistical Science, Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences)
• Manuel Spierenburg – Data Scientist bij Bol.com (Computer Science & Advanced Data Analytics)
• Lindsey Burggraaf – Data Scientist & Data Engineer bij Onderlinge ’s-Gravenhage (Computational Drug Discovery, Pharmaceutical Sciences)
There will be the opportunity to discuss and ask questions like:
- What motivation did they have to start a career in data science?
- Which skills are necessary to be a succesful data scientist?
- What does a typical day look like at the job?
- Is a background in informatics essential for work in data science?
- How can data science be applied in jobs outside the typical "science" industry?
Join the discussion and ask your questions about the opportunities and challenges, frustrations and success factors of working in data science.
