Data in the ATL - Data Analysts are in High Demand, So Expand Your Career Horizons!

Guest Speaker
Shawn Williams, Analytics Energy Procurement Supervisor, UPS

Join GSU alumnus Shawn Williams (B.S., Economics; Spanish minor, 2018) as he shares his experiences working as a data analyst for two Atlanta-based Fortune 500 companies – UPS and Delta Air Lines – as well as other meaningful co-op and internship opportunities while at GSU that led to his early career successes. Shawn will discuss both the skills and training he has acquired along the way, and also the positive feedback and encouragement from faculty and other mentors that led him to pursue a career in data analytics. Shawn encourages students to be open to data careers, which require technical and quantitative skills, but also the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they gain and put into practice while at GSU.


#DataInTheATL is a speaker series hosted by Georgia State University Library that connects the university with a variety of Atlanta-based professionals, highlighting how data analysis is being used successfully in their daily work while introducing students to potential careers in data science.


Note: This talk does not count as a workshop toward the RDS@GSU Data Certificate.
