The CEO’s talked about the skills and choices to make in preparing for a career in Big Data. They also mentioned how important it was to work for a large trusted company like Thomson Reuters that’s rich in data, and an innovator and partner in the big data space.

This event was also the host to the first group from Mass Big Data Trek by Mass Big Data Initiative. The overall goal of the Big Data Trek program is to showcase top big data companies to the top university talent in order to increase the percentage of graduates that choose to stay in Massachusetts post-graduation to start companies or take jobs in the big data sector.
