About this event

Dr Katharina Groeger, team manager in the chemical industry, will share with us some of her insights gleaned over several years of interviewing, hiring, and managing data scientists, as well as data engineers and web developers.

Her talk will be divided into three parts. First, Kat will bring up some of the questions that you should be asking yourself prior to starting your job search. Next, she will elaborate on the interview process from her perspective as a manager. Lastly, Kat will comment on feedback and development at work once you're hired.

The presentation will cover: 
- working with, not against, your personal strengths and weaknesses
- relevance of projects and experience
- the job interview as a two-way tool for aligning expectations
- organisational and cultural fit
- teamwork vs individual work

Following the talk, Kat will take questions from the audience. See you on the live stream!
