This week we have our first Fireside Chat with Jennifer McLamb. Jennifer is a data scientist at DAT Solutions. Before DAT solutions, Jennifer worked for companies like Capital One and Circuit City as an analyst. Jennifer has knowledge in a variety of different fields including data science, machine learning, analysis, and more. Additionally, she has industry expertise in logistics, finance, and retail as a result of her strong business background. Jennifer’s fireside chat is titled "Your First Day Isn’t Your First Day — starting on your first DS team”. While this talk is centered around Data Science, this topic is one that can be valuable for those starting out in a variety of different fields. Jennifer will cover topics of navigating and understanding the business context, working into the problem space of a company, and communicating and forming connections with people in other disciplines.
I encourage anyone who is able to attend to do so. Additionally, Jennifer will be answering questions from students. If you have a question for Jennifer that you would like to submit ahead of time, please do so using the following link:
