One of the things we enjoy most is putting together a new cohort of Data Professionals. Every few months, we go through the cycle of applications, information calls, interviews and counting down to the first day.
Each cohort is different and they all bring new memories and connections. This weekend I was in our Lab and starting turning the big wall that does not have whiteboard paint on it into our Photo Gallery. As I was hanging the pictures, each one brought back lots of memories.
This time, we put together two cohorts at the same time. If you would like to join our digital version of the SkillsUP Lab, our next group will start 5 October 2020. [Editor’s note: Sadly we can’t time travel, but you can still join our cohort. Go to skillsuplab.nl or click on the link above for more info.] Interviews are starting this week and I am looking forward to getting to know the people behind the applications.
For our next physical program, we will start 31 August 2020 here in our Lab in Rotterdam. We’ve scheduled those interviews start at the end of the month. We had a number of people who would have started with us in April so we’re halfway there already. [Editor’s note: Hello again! Don’t let the dates scare you away, we’re still open!]
With each cohort, they connect to the next one. They do this in a number of ways. Most importantly, by sharing their knowledge. Whatever they learn during their courses and Power Skills, our Data Professionals pass on. The cohorts also connect by being study mentors and helping with interviewing. In short: generally pitching in whenever they can. This increases the power of your network as well. You will go out into the world as a data professional with a strong community surrounding you.
If you are curious about what the program is like, you can chat with any of the members of our previous cohorts and get a view into their experience- just Contact us! They will tell you the good, the bad, the moments that SQL made them cry 😉 and the joy when the models worked!
