Navigating Data Science Interviews


According to LinkedIn’s third annual U.S. Emerging Jobs Report, the data scientist role is ranked third among the top-15 emerging jobs in the U.S. Though the field of data science has been exploding, there didn’t appear to be a comprehensive resource to help data scientists navigate the interview process... until now.

In this session with Shrilata Murthy, you will learn:
- the foundational knowledge that is key to any data science interview
- the 100-Word Story framework for writing a stellar resume
- what to expect from a variety of interview styles (take-home, presentation, case study, etc.), and
- actionable ways to differentiate yourself from your peers.


Shrilata Murthy is a practicing data scientist with experience in statistical modeling, data mining, and data visualization. She holds a Master’s degree in Analytics from Northwestern University and a B.E. in Information Technology from Mumbai University. As a programmer-turned-data scientist, Murthy now enjoys consulting to help improve data-driven decision making.
When she’s not building machine-learning models, Murthy loves spending time with her daughter and going for outdoor runs. Her debut book Be the Outlier: How to Ace Data Science Interviews is a practical guide for any novice or experienced data scientist looking to improve their interview technique.
