UCLA Young Alumni Career Forum

Posted: January 19, 2017 in Events

ucla_career_centerI will be heading up the Big Data/Data Science area for the upcoming UCLA Young Alumni Career Forum on Saturday, Jan. 21 on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles. The forum presents a unique opportunity for recent UCLA grads with a focus on career strategies where professional career counselors, employers, and nationally recognized speakers will share effective strategies to strengthen skills as the candidates advance their early careers.

I’m eager to advise future data scientists all about the tremendous opportunities in this field. I feel the timing is excellent to transition into data science, and big data engineering. This is my opportunity to help shape new careers and help fellow UCLA alumni along the way. Looking forward to it!
