Inquidia recently completed our seventh season of college recruiting, interviewing 30 candidates from three top universities, ultimately hiring two Spring 2015 grads. The newbies include a natural sciences major and a joint econ/computer science student.

We look for expertise in the scientific method, statistics/machine learning, data management, and computation – which we consider the foundations of both business intelligence and data science. Ideally, students will be at an intermediate undergraduate level of statistical knowledge that includes experimental design, regression and forecasting. Data skills include SQL and wrangling/munging with scripting languages like Python and Ruby. And computation can include programming expertise in Java/C++, Python/Ruby and R/SAS. The acquired expertise can either be course or self-taught. A capstone project or internship combining stats, data and programming is ideal.
