Missed our live event? Watch it on-demand.

Sign up to watch Program Manager Sean Woodhead and Dr. Saber Amini, Co-Founder and Product Manager at Intransigense Technologies as well as an Instructor at the School of Continuing Studies, host a virtual “fireside chat” on the surge in small start-up companies that are hiring data analysts. During the conversation, Dr. Amini describes why these companies should be attractive to new graduates, how your job with a start-up is a stepping stone to working for a large enterprise, and where there is room to grow for those who prefer to start their own business.

A brief overview of the Certificate in Big Data Analytics and its OSAP-eligible intensive format, which begins March 7, will also be provided.
