At the precipice of graduating with a Master's in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I am in the market looking to employ my skills in Machine Learning and Software Development. Consequently, I am seeking full-time positions starting in December 2020/January 2021.
In my SOP for MS admissions, I had written that we are living in the times of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The world is being accelerated into an age of unimaginable growth that is being enabled and driven by the ease of running sophisticated algorithms on machines of scale, both in terms of numbers and processing power, and by being able to leverage machine learning and AI to truly drive data-driven decision making. While there are many drivers of the revolution, I believe that data science is at the helm of what's accelerating us into the future and I want to be part of the effort that takes us there.
UMass afforded me the opportunity to pursue a Data Science concentration in their Master's Computer Science program. Here, I had the privilege of imbibing knowledge from some of the most revered minds in academia. I worked on projects ranging from full-stack development to creating ensemble methods and ML pipelines. I have learned so much yet there is so much to learn. But I now have the skills and the know-how to deliver value and that is what I am currently seeking- a place for me to employ my skills to provide value.
