What even is a data science interview? Do they want me to be a developer, or an analyst, or a unicorn? At this workshop we’ll go over what to expect in data science interviews, focusing especially on in-person tech interviews. From the basic layout to the right answer to (almost) every “what data structure can you use to make this faster” question, you’ll be ready to land the internship or job of your data-science-filled dreams.
