This virtual event invites professionals with 1-5 years of experience in Data Science or Big Data who aspire to become part of the world’s leading organisations.

Participants will engage in a series of challenges in each of the respective streams, meticulously crafted to evaluate their skills and knowledge. These challenges offer not only the chance to win an attractive range of rewards like gaming laptops, tech gadgets including noise-cancellation headphones and smart speakers, and online shopping vouchers but also possible career opportunities with partner organisations.

There are two streams of challenges in CareerTech 2023 – Big Data and Data Science. Both follow a similar format with multiple choice questions, coding, and video questions. Each challenge will have a test duration of 130 minutes. The Big Data Challenge will cover topics such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Databases, Data structures, Cloud Computing, and programming knowledge. The Data Science challenge will cover topics like Statistics, DS, ML, BI Tools, and programming knowledge.

Each challenge will have a first prize, a second prize, and five third prizes. A total of 14 prizes will be distributed at CareerTech for the two challenges. Besides that, every participant will get a participation certificate and the chance to win partner-branded goodies.

Our CareerTech event has been designed in line with the current demands of the industry. The market for industry-savvy big data and data science professionals is only going up, and through this event, we hope to encourage technology professionals to challenge themselves and evaluate their expertise.
