From Academia to Tech Industry: Breaking into Data Science

Data Scientists analyze large sets of data to make predictions about the future. While most transfer from professional careers in computer science, some of the best data scientists come straight from academia. If you have an advanced degree in a quantitative area of study like physics, applied mathematics, or statistics, the transition from academia into the tech sector is easier than you may think.

We are bringing a PhD former quantitative researcher and current Talent Leader from Teza Technologies, Olga Myndyuk, to teach you how to transfer your academic data analytic skills to the tech industry. Join us for this intimate workshop where we will review your resumes, teach you how to position your skillset, and show you some of the most applicable jobs for you.

NOTE: This is a highly curated session where we will be selecting participants. After you register on Eventbrite, please send your resume to for review and we will let you know if you've been accepted a week before the event.

This session is brought to you by Sputnik ATX and Galvanize.

Lunch & Drinks provided. Enter building from the Nueces St. side
