DJ Patil inspires the University of California’s School of Information graduates

Last week, social media innovator and data science pioneer, DJ Patil delivered a speech at the University of California’s School of Information graduation ceremony. Encouraging students to “seek out those that will take a risk on you”, DJ Patil was praised for giving “a great story–and some excellent career advice.”

He spoke about his path to success (founder and director of LinkedIn’s data science department 2008-2011) and gave advice to new graduates, including “actively take chances on others, even when it is at a risk to you” and “put yourself in a position so people can easily help you out.”
