Sheil Naik is a technical trainer on Bloomberg’s Global Data Training team. He graduated from The College of New Jersey in 2009 with a degree in finance, which helped teach him the foundations of finance needed to work with his clients at Bloomberg. “I work with leaders and subject-matter experts to forecast the technical data skills our 1,500 Global Data employees around the world will need in the future and strategically plan, design, and develop curriculum to teach those skills,” said Naik. “I work with my teammates to deliver our courses and use the same data skills I teach to collect and analyze data to measure the impact and success of our classes.”
Currently living in Clinton, NJ, Naik is married to a fellow alumna who he met a year after graduating from TCNJ. They have a 3-year-old son who they hope will someday be a Lion, too!
Words of advice to current students: “Start building a portfolio of your work before you interview and continue to add to it as you learn new skills. The best way to convince future employers that you’re a good fit for a job is to actually show them, and the best way to show them is to create something and publish it online. Whether you’re learning financial modeling, machine learning modeling, or something else, practice what you’re learning with real data, publish your findings on a personal website or blog, Medium post, or GitHub, and market your work on your resume and social media.”
