Discover ways to engage with and recruit students by participating in events such as employer information sessions, industry talks and guest lectures. Contact Us to book a time or find out more.

Recruitment Talk

One way to engage with Master of Data Science students and alumni is to give a one-hour presentation or talk.  If your company is currently recruiting you could give an “Employer Recruitment talk” where you can provide information about your company and the job opportunities that are available.

Industry Talk

We also welcome employers who want to build a company presence or who are interested in providing an educational talk to our students and alumni.  These “Employer Industry talks” are more informative in nature and can range from giving students a perspective of a day in the life of a Data Scientist, company projects, industry information or an educational presentation on a data science topic or skill.
