Event Description

Data is all around us. In fact, 80% of all the current data in the world today was only created in the last two years. From individuals and global companies, we’re all looking towards making informed decisions — whether it’s understanding the percentage of returns in a product we’re about to buy, all the way to companies learning international consumer trends.

The Data Science and Analytics industry is an attractive one. According to Indeed, the average Data Scientist in Australia earns $120,000 a year, with demand for data roles to continue increasing in coming years.

If a career in data is something you may be interested in, how do you get started?

At our panel, learn why a career in data should be your next career move. The night will entail:

  • An overview of the Data Science and Analytics industry
  • A comprehensive panel discussion with a data analyst, course instructor, and leading recruiter
  • Open Q&A for any questions  you may have
