Data Science Career Fair – Event Report

On 28 February Amsterdam Data Science and the Big Data Alliance hosted their first Data Science Career Fair for Master and PhD students. The interest from both data science students and companies looking for data science talent was significant with over 200 people attending the event!
In workshops, inspire sessions and speeddates students learnt the many options available to them. We finished the event with drinks, pizza & networking. We hope the event has inspired the next generation of data scientists and look forward to the next!
