    Come join us for a fun, informative session with the co-founders of BYOR, Aerin Kim and Rohit Pandey.

    Aerin graduated from Yonsei University with a Bachelors in Computer Science and Industrial Engineering and then went on to get her Masters in Operations Research at Columbia University in the City of New York. Prior to co-founding BYOR, Aerin was with Standard Chartered Bank as a Senior Manager and then Data Scientist at Boxfish.

    Rohit Pandey graduate from IIT Delhi with a Bachelors in Mechanical, Production and Industrial Technology and then went on to complete his Masters in Operations Research at Columbia University in the City of New York. His work experience includes Indus Valley Partners, The Nielsen Company, Zaloni, Microsoft and LinkedIn.


    Given the increasing interest of deep learning (word2vec) and machine learning from students, this will be a real "tech" talk. In this session we'll teach students about the basic real-world neural networks and the word2vec concept.

    Structure of the Talk:

    First 30 minutes: Introductory session for Deep Learning and word2vec.
    Second 30 minutes: Tech Resume Dos and Donts
    Last 30 minutes: Q&A and live resume fix from BYOR.

    We will be sending out a form to apply to have a live resume fix with Aerin or Rohit soon. We already have a huge demand for this given Aerin and Rohit's unique experience at many desirable tech companies so if you really want to get a 5 minute session with them, we encourage you to put some effort into the form.
