Paying it Forward – You Can Help

As a data science manager, you know how important talent is to our work.

The purpose of this group founded by Shivanku Misra of PayPal is described on the Career in Analytic’s LinkedIn site:

Analytics and data science have been receiving well deserved attention in the recent times, hence generating great amount of interest in this career domain.

This leads to a growing need of enabling the right guidance that not only helps new analytics employees get the best start, but also lets the data science leaders get connected to new talent that they could potentially hire.

-Career in Analytics Purpose Statement

Navigate to the site and join the group. I have had the pleasure of talking with Shivanku, and his initiative is a thoughtful approach to growing the underlying asset base of our industry – your people.

The CiA site started a new, online interview series today that features analytics professionals. The intent is to begin a conversation among community members whether you are a practitioner or a recipient of data.

I was quite honored to have the opportunity to sit down with Shivanku and give the first interview. There will be questions and answers during the week and then another professional will be featured.

See you at the CiA site.
