This is a talk for practicing and prospective data scientists.
Many data scientists are enjoying fruitful, rewarding careers, but many are not. There is a lot of churn in the industry, and many are quite unhappy with their jobs. Not all organisations are ready for data science, and not all have the right people in place to manage, and support it. It turns out that there quite a few simple signs that things may not be all that well. Alternatively, there are some key signs to look for in the best organisations.
Eugene will share with you some key questions to ask prospective employers in the interview. They are interviewing you, but you are also interviewing them ! Use this opportunity to ensure that you will have a work environment in which you learn, grow and thrive.
