My first data science resume (sample data scientist resume)

By Joel Prince Varghese, MEng ’16 (IEOR)


If you’ve ever googled data science resume, you’ve probably been showered with a plethora of generic articles about structuring a resume, sample resume templates and probably shown example resumes of people who don’t exist or for whom there’s no evidence that they had success with it. While there are some good ones, I do find majority of them too generic for my liking.
