"I'm glad I did it."

I know there are other Insight fellows lurking around but I'll bite.

I'm currently a fellow in the Health Data program in Boston. It's a seven week program. There are no "classes" as part of the program, it's mostly small workshops and peer-to-peer learning.... Read More

Most fellows would say that it's intense. Week 1 is spent brainstorming project ideas ,finding data, and presenting your project idea at the end of the week. Week 2 is spend implementing your project (which probably includes a web app), and to deliver a minimally viable project by the end of the week. Week 3 is spent doing more tweaking of your project, with the deliverable being your final product. Week 4 is spent practicing your presentation of your project (which you will present to companies). Weeks 5-7 are spent demoing your project at companies and prepping for interviews. Weeks 7+ are when you start to get calls back for interviews. So yes, it's fast and intense.

In terms of the too good to be true bit: I can speak from my own experience in my cohort. We have 18 people in our cohort, and we are a little under two months out from the "official" end of the program. 11 fellows have been placed at companies so far, with a 12th most likely on their way out. In terms of job searching, that's pretty rapid pace from unemployment to employment.

I'm still looking, but the program directors continue to advocate for me at companies they have connections with (I have an interview Friday, actually). You are a fellow till you are employed, technically. Even though the program officially ended, most people kept coming back to the office for studying and practice. I feel very supported, and I feel certain that those of us left will find jobs at least within the next 6-8 months.

I don't know how accurate the 100% placement rate statistic is, but given what I've seen, I really have nothing bad to say about the program. I'm glad I did it.

As a 2014 Insight Fellow, Insight is fantastic and I don't say that lightly. The two best things I gained through Insight are:

an instant network of new data scientists at top tech companies who are bright, enthusiastic, and hard-working, many of whom... Read More

"Great program - good experience"

It's a very good program and it was a fantastic experience. The biggest value, by far, is the network/access it provides (even if you could get a data science job without Insight it would still probably be worth going). I don't think any of the other... Read More

However, it's somewhat more difficult to find good data science jobs now than it was when the program began. At least a few of the partner companies that have historically hired a lot of Insight fellows are no longer actively recruiting through the program. However, I and all of my close friends from the program ended up with jobs at top companies.
