Q&A with Authors of "Build a Career in Data Science"

Authors of “Build a Career in Data Science” Emily Robinson and Jacqueline Nolis will read selections from their book and discuss why they were meaningful and what thinking went into making it. In this session you’ll learn about some of the higher-level thinking that went into designing a book to help people excel in their data science careers, as well as hear stories from Emily and Jacqueline’s pasts that ended up shaping the narrative. After Emily and Jacqueline discuss their book, the floor will open so anyone can ask their data science career questions!

This event will be hosted over Zoom, and the link will be available on this Meetup page and sent to all attendees at noon on the day of the event.
