Hiring Partners & Employers

Applying to the fellowship was the best thing I could have done for my career. There’s really no other program like it out there where you can take the lead on a project for a hedge fund and deliver a product that will actually be used. I gained invaluable experience in advanced ML methods that boosted my confidence in interviews and landed me where I am today!
