Build Your AI/Data Portfolio and Effectively Network with Employers
January 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Vector Institute is collaborating with Phase AI, a company dedicated to supporting data professionals in connecting, learning, and advancing their careers to run a two-part webinar series to accelerate your career in AI.
Learn how to successfully reach out to and connect with the data- and ML-focused companies you want to work at! This session will explore how to network remotely and how to optimize your online presence to stand out from the crowd of applicants seeking data-focused roles. We will specifically look at how to translate your data/AI projects into a compelling portfolio to share with potential employers.
This webinar will explore:
- How to stand out through your portfolio
- Examples of strong portfolios across types of roles and career stages and what to prepare for interviews
- How to practice your portfolio or project pitch and present to potential employers
- Practice and learn what a strong LinkedIn InMail message to a recruiter looks like
In addition to the webinars, Phase AI will also be doing one-on-one sessions with students to conduct mock technical interviews and to do a resume, Linkedin, and portfolio review. If you are interested in taking part in one of these sessions, please indicate your interest on the event registration form. Space is limited and Vector will reach out to the students that have been selected to participate in these one-on-one sessions later in January. Note that attendance at the webinars is required for students who wish to participate in a one-on-one session.Register today!
