CV writing and skills gap analysis: A roadmap for your Data & AI job search, Data Science Retreat, Samstag, 01. September 2018

Are you a PhD researcher or Postdoc looking to move to the industry or a startup? Your CV looks too academic? You are not being invited for interview?
To kickstart your career, we offer a CV workshop to achieve the following:

Structuring and writing of your CV to maximize impact with readers in industry
Skills gap analysis for positions in Data Analytics, Data Science or AI
Ready-to-go strategy for moving on the labor market

The maximum number of workshop participants is 10-12. With the workshop you are eligible to join 10,000 Data Scientists for Europe.
Participants
Any PhD seeking opportunities in Data Analytics, Data Science or Artificial Intelligence. Typically, you will have a numerate background - e.g. STEM, statistics, econometrics – and some experience with relevant programming languages like SQL, Matlab, Python or R.
CV workshop fee
We offer this workshop for free because we hope you will join the campaign 10,000 Data Scientists for Europe and start your career in Data Analytics, Data Science or AI. However, we are charging a non-refundable registration fee of €50.- for drinks, food, and further promotion. We do this to optimize for the allocation of the 10-12 seats. 
Your hosts
Dr. Chris Armbruster is a Max Planck alumnus, and Director at Data Science Retreat, Berlin.
Dr. Dina Deifallah is a Data Scientist. She has a track record in optimization algorithms and a PhD in communications engineering.
Proof-of-concept
The workshop concept is based on

>100 re-written CVs, and behind-the-scenes cooperation in getting candidates interviews
Numerous requests to help with CV writing, emerging from the workshop series ‘Science to Data Science’
A trial run of the essential elements with the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy on 04 May 2018 with 70 participants
