What the Panelists Discussed
During this event, the above panelists shared a wealth of information pertaining to their current roles, their interview experiences and what they see as the most valuable technical and soft skills. Moderated by Associate Director, Career Strategies Center MSBA Career Coach Sonia Liang, this panel was jam packed with amazing career wisdom.
Why It Matters
These panelists were in your position not too long ago: passionate International Business School students eager to break into the field of Data Analytics. This shared experience of being a Brandeis student is what makes alumni panels such a valuable resource. Learning about these graduates’ experiences at Brandeis and what drove them to pursue certain career paths can spark inspiration for your own career journey. By relating your experience to that of alumni, you can refine your job search, improve your interview preparation and revamp your application process.
