Data Science Mentoring Circles Program

Hey there, if you are looking to build a career in the science of data (Data Science, Machine Learning, Biostatistics, Data Analytics) then this program might just help you do that. No need to sell you on why this line of work  represents a great career choice but are you  aware of how competitive the field can be? It is not rare for hiring managers to receive thousands of applications for a single job opening. The latter is particularly true for the big tech companies. 

This being said, despair not young padawan. You can tip the scale in your favor by merely being smart about your employment search. That’s what this program is all about. Through a series of workshops, we will share with you tips on how to network and prepare for interviews. But most importantly, you will get the chance to be mentored  by  a professional within the field! 

Check out our 2022 mentors’ slate  which includes professionals from companies like Amazon, Google,  Twitter, and Uber! 

Over the past couple years, the program has connected 80 graduate students to 20 different mentors. Some students even found their summer internship through their mentors and we would love to help you do the same. You can read about past participants’ experience!

Boston University is committed to the highest levels of intellectual and creative achievement. Crucial to that mission is a significantly increased breadth of social, cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity among our ranks. We strongly encourage applications from diverse candidates for both mentors and mentees.

Mentors applications are due by Friday, August 26th 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. Mentees applications are due by Sunday, September 25th, 2022 11:59 PM ET.
