Sorry, found it. It went to junk.

Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately since we have a new domain name, this tends to happen. Please make sure to whitelist the domain.

Thanks for the informative webinar, Wojciech. I appreciated hearing your general input on DS employement and your perspective on how the industry and hiring process are evolving.

For those of us from academia (especially upcoming/recent graduates), having a "portfolio" to me seems like a tall task. From my perspective, such a process involves preparing a github repo with code and data, generating some example/representative results, and making the output readable, understandable, and exciting.

As an industry insider, what are some of the key elements from a portfolio that recruiters will be looking for? What's the best and most efficient way for those of us applying for jobs to spend our time?

I attended and thought it was very beneficial.  It (and this forum) brings a really strong community vibe which fosters everyone to help each other out instead of competing against one another for jobs, which is nice. For those that gets selected for interviews with clients, if there ends up being a "part2" for more thorough coaching would seem like the next logical step.

That's a great idea! We can definitely organize a webinar on the actual interview components for data science. We'll follow up on this for next week. Thank you for this, and the kind words.
