11:05am: Navigating the Tricky Process of Becoming A Data Scientist
So you want to be a data scientist? Seems like everyone is typing that into Indeed. What does it actually mean to land your first role? How do you transition to data science from a different field? What does it take to be successful once you’re hired? Rather than doing a deep dive into the tech stack requirements (although we’ll touch on this), Dr. Natalie Morse will mainly focus on what she's learned though her own experience breaking into the field, and now as a hiring manager for data science interns.
Dr. Natalie Morse is a data scientist at BMW in South Carolina, USA. She works within their innovation and research group to develop technology for the BMW Group. In addition to this role, she works as a graduate coach helping others navigate the tricky grad school world. Her goals are to bring more diverse voices to academia and tech.
