Data science trainee references

"I like the idea, of working at a big corporate, and receive training every Friday in a small group. This training day is fully tailored to match our needs in soft- and hard skills, and gives us the possibilities to share knowledge among other trainees. With nice weather, the friday afternoon drinks are hosted on the boat. Is there a better way to start the weekend?"

"What really strikes me is that all the trainees are driven, eager, and pro-active. Everyone is looking to learn as much as possible, which makes for a stimulating and motivating environment. I also like the fact that we have a great deal of influence on the training program, allowing me to learn what I want to learn. Oh, and the Friday afternoon drinks are always fun"

"The Xomnia Data Science Traineeship enables me to reveal the value of data in a non-technical organization (a municipality). The training days help to gain knowledge and discuss both day-to-day and big problems. It is the ideal package for exploring and exploiting data science."

“If you're attending Xomnia's traineeship, you'll always be looking forward to Fridays. The training sessions are inspiring, the people are knowledgeable and the atmosphere is fun!”

"For me, as a person who loves to learn and to tackle problems, the Xomnia traineeship feels like a privelege. Every Friday I have the chance to work on new techniques and play with data. I think it is also very important to have this kind of knowledge sharing, especially in a rapidly evolving field of expertise like data science."

Mijke van den HurkAcademic background: Artificial Intelligence
Boosting: National Police

"What I like most about the traineeship is that I’ve experienced how data science projects are done both in a rapidly growing startup as well as at a large client. On Fridays it is fun to share experiences with other trainees and to have interesting trainings that aren’t just about technical skills but also develop the soft skills a successful data scientist needs."

Without the training and guidance the traineeship had to offer, our two data science trainees Kasper en Katherine at Decos wouldn’t have made the crucial steps in our exploring phase with data science.
