Whether you know it or not, your PhD gave you the skills you need to get hired as a Data Scientist, but have you been able to put your skills to good use?

Do you know how to speak the language of a Data Scientist? Do you know how to speak the language of industry in general?

Or, are you holding yourself back by focusing on your lack of industry experience?

Like most PhDs, are you to find a job because you’re looking for a job title that matches your niche academic field of study?

If so, listen to these PhDs who were hired into Data Scientist roles without having any data science or industry experience…

Rubenka Bandyopadhyay, PhD was hired as a Data Scientist at Itron, Inc using our Cheeky Scientist methodology and Data Scientist career training.

She said the difference-maker for her was getting access to the right resumé templates and methodology and being able to set up informational interviews with other Data Scientists.

We’ve seen so many PhDs without industry experience and without data science experience getting hired into Data Scientist roles, while seeing many more fail to get hired into this career track simply for being invisible to employers, that we decided to create an Advanced Program dedicated to this career path.

Cheeky Scientist has created a Data Scientist career program, under our Advanced Program portfolio, called the Data Scientist Syndicate. The goal of this Program is to help you to create the perfect data scientist resumé and to get educated on the specific data scientist job-searching skills you will need to get hired. The Data Scientist Syndicate is tailored to help PhDs get hired to the top data scientist roles on the industry job market.

What Is The Data Scientist Career Program?

Our Program the Data Scientist Syndicate is made by PhDs currently working in industry as Data Scientists. Yet, they have all been where you likely are now, stuck in their job search wondering how they could ever get hired without industry experience.

They know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed while in search of your ideal job. Many of them were PhD students, postdocs or even unemployed when they started their job searches, which means they know firsthand what is needed to transition from job seeker to gainfully employed Data Scientist – and they are ready to help you do the same.

Are you worried that you don’t have the necessary experience to earn a highly paid, PhD-level Data Scientist position? If so our Data Scientist Advanced Program ensures that your resumé, LinkedIn profile, and interview answers appeal to top-paying industry employers who are looking to fill Data Scientist positions right now. The Program will also ensure you get direct access to current PhD-level Data Scientists, as well as hiring managers and recruiters at top data science companies.

Training Modules Included In The Data Scientist Program

You’ll get lifetime access, with no recurring membership fees, to 6 training modules when you enroll in our training Program, the Data Scientist Syndicate. These consist of over 60 videos and 12 advanced training workbooks – all created by well-placed data scientists with PhDs. We add new training material to the Program every week for the life of the Program, so you can not only get into your first Data Scientist job, but your second, third and so on.

PhDs in the Program get access to monthly webinars that are only available to members of the Data Scientist Career Program.

What happens when you complete the Program? Don’t worry – we won’t leave you on your own. We’ll continue to support you with our private job referral network where data scientists and hiring managers can connect.

The #1 Data Scientist Program For PhDs: What Our Members Have To Say

The fact that the Data Scientist Career Program was developed by and designed for PhD data scientists sets it apart from other Programs.

Our members are proof of that.

PhD graduates who struggled to find great jobs before investing in this Program say that it:

  • Provided the support they needed but didn’t have after graduation
  • Gave them the guidance they needed to make profitable career decisions
  • Gave them a strategy that’s less overwhelming and easier to achieve
  • Provided a safe space for members to lift each other up
  • Helped them achieve a work-life balance that was missing during their time in academia

Marios Tsatsos, PhD says that “the transition plan together with the support of the …group” is what got him hired as a Data Scientist at Clarivate Analytics.
