Data Science Recruiting Day

San Francisco, CA - Sep 22 5:00 am to 9:00 am

Free


This event is for employers only.

What is Metis? Metis is a Data Science educator in New York City & San Francisco. Our 12 week bootcamp is designed for people with a programming and math background who seek to deepen their knowledge within Data Science. About 50% of our students have advanced degrees and about 75% come from industry. Over the course of 12 weeks, our students design & build 5 Data Science projects using real-world data. Their 5th & final "passion project" is the one demo'd at Career Day. Our graduates have accepted Data Science jobs at companies like Facebook, Capital One Labs, Tesla, IBM, Spotify, Buzzfeed, Booz Allen Hamilton, WeWork, GrubHub, and more.

How does Career Day work? Once you arrive & register at check-in, you'll receive a resume book that features each of our graduating data scientists. This should serve as your guide for the evening, allowing you to review each graduate's resume & profile, as well as jot down notes so you can remember whom you'd like to meet during the networking portion. The Metis team will then give a brief welcome & explanation of the evening, and then our graduates will begin their final project presentations. After presentations, we will break into a networking hour where employers (you) are encouraged to meet the graduates. The goal is to connect you with potential candidates for your open data science jobs.

What happens after Career Day? Metis' Head of Careers, Megan Ayraud, will share a digital copy of the resume book, which includes all of our graduates contact information. Since Metis does not collect any fees to hire our graduates, we encourage you to reach out to people directly. However, we are happy to help facilitate any conversations if you'd like.

Schedule:

  • 5 PM: Arrivals & registration. Your team will receive name tags and this cohort's resume book.
  • 5:15 PM: Welcome from the Metis team
  • 5:30 PM: Project demos
  • 7:30 - 9: Networking

Food & drink will be provided throughout the evening. Metis does not charge any fees to employers who hire our graduates.
