Each monthly meetup is a workshop-style discussion of the resumes submitted by attendees. The discussion is moderated by our founder Kaiser Fung, together with an invited hiring manager of data science and analytics. Participants are expected to offer feedback on each other’s resumes. The more you give, the more you receive.

5:30-5:45 Introduction
5:45-6:45 Resume workshop
7:00-7:30 Networking

If you attend, you agree to have your resume displayed to other participants. All participants agree to conduct the workshop in a professional and constructive manner. Due to time constraint, we will review about ten resumes, but common issues will be highlighted throughout the workshop and can benefit everyone.

The workshop is jointly organized by New York Public Library Job Search Central (SIBL), and Principal Analytics Prep, the premier data analytics bootcamp located at Harvard Business School Startup Studio in Manhattan. The discussion is led by Kaiser Fung, founder of Principal Analytics Prep, former head of data at SiriusXM Radio and Vimeo, and founding director of Applied Analytics at Columbia University.

See below for additional community rules.

Important to know

Because this is a highly over-subscribed event, we are implementing the following community rules to ensure fairness and camaraderie:
1. You must submit an electronic version of your resume prior to the event. We reserve the right to cancel your RSVP if you do not follow this rule.
2. You must have a ticket to attend this event. We DO NOT accept walk-ins. All questions about RSVPs should be addressed to organizers prior to the event.
3. You are expected to contribute to the discussion. The more feedback you are willing to provide to other participants, the more feedback you will receive on your own resume.
4. Your feedback to other participants should be directly related to their resumes. If your question is not obviously about the resume being discussed, we will ask you to wait for your turn.
5. Instead of defending your decisions in front of the workshop participants, poll the room to see what the average opinion is. You ultimately have the right to decide whether or not to take the advice.
