Data+ 2016 participants Morton Mo and Lindsay Hirschhorn followed up with us recently to share how their participation in Data+ has helped them find jobs in data science after the program wrapped up in the summer of 2016. While each student had a very different experience, the one thing they share is the edge that Data+ gave their resumes, and got them the job!
Data+ 2017 has accepted 70 students to research and work in interdisciplinary project teams over the summer, starting May 22. The program will run 10 weeks, during which project teams will work on data provided by their clients and learn to marshal, analyze, and visualize that data based on the client’s goals for each project. "This year it was a very large applicant pool, and it was hard to make all of these decisions," Co-Director Paul Bendich says.
