New Blog Post: Veteran Skills for Data Science Jobs
In his guest blog, Chad Lanctot shares how two decades in the Coast Guard prepared him for a transition into civilian data science jobs. During the last year, Lanctot served as a 2023 Community Fellow for the Physical Samples Cluster.
We are sharing the blog post this week in honor of Veterans Day. Thank you to Chad and everyone in the ESIP community who has served. The ESIP office will be closed on Friday for the holiday.
The call for sessions is still open for the 2024 January ESIP Meeting! But it closes next Monday, so get your submission in soon. We look forward to gathering with you virtually for lively, in-depth discussions, demos, and presentations.
The 2024 theme is Grounded in Trust: Data Ethics Empower Collaboration.
