Insight Data Science

Avg Rating:1.0 ( 1 reviews )

Insight is an intensive 7-week post-doctoral training fellowship bridging the gap between academia and data science in Silicon Valley and New York. Applicants should have a background in Physics & Astrophysics, Mathematics & Statistics, Neuroscience & Bioinformatics, or Engineering & Computer Science, as well as their PhD. Students are mentored by employees of top tech companies, who then hire graduates as data scientists and engineers. Insight is a funded PhD fellowship, so admitted fellows do not pay upfront tuition.

    I applied for the program several months ago and was interviewed by one of Insight’s interviewers, ‘Matt.’ About 10 minutes into the call, Matt jumped into an immediate negative assessment of my interview performance after asking when I last coded professionally. 

    I then asked a series of questions about the program, which he perfunctorily answered  and directed me to read Insight’s FAQ. 

    Matt then asked if I was recording the conversation, with no reasons offered for his line of questioning. (I was not recording the conversation and informed him that I was not.). He then proceeded to speak on an off tangent and again stated that if I were recording the conversation, it was not allowed. (I had already stated I was not recording the conversation, and was unsure why he kept pursuing this line of questioning).

    I’m not certain what impression Insight wishes to leave with prospective candidates, but it was not a good one for me.  I will not be pursuing this poorly run program as a result, and will not be recommending it to any of my friends or colleagues.
