In today’s ever-evolving job market, the challenge of securing employment is a topic that resonates widely. Through news media and personal stories from friends and former colleagues, I’ve sensed a growing need to support fresh graduates in their quest for meaningful careers.

Despite a seemingly robust U.S. labor market, the reality is nuanced, with disparities in job growth across industries. Particularly in the technology and biopharmaceutical sectors—our areas of expertise—there’s a noticeable contraction in job opportunities, highlighting a misalignment between the talent pool and market demands.

As a leader in data science, AI, and healthcare, I’ve observed a disconnect between academic preparation and the practical skills required in our field. Here are some insights:

  • While AI remains a sought-after domain, but entry-level school coursework does not guarantee a relevant AI job.
  • A master’s degree in data science is beneficial, yet the lack of domain-specific knowledge, especially in healthcare, can be a significant entry barrier. For instance, real-world data has been a hot topic in the market. It requires healthcare domain knowledge and hands-on project experience to understand all the nuances when analyzing real-world data.
  • Beyond technical expertise, the industry values soft skills such as effective communication, teamwork, and adaptability.

In response to this situation, Polygon Health Analytics is thrilled to introduce the Launch Pad program. This initiative is a comprehensive train-to-hire program designed for individuals curious and interested in real-world data analytics, offering a pathway into the fields of real-world data (RWD), real-world evidence (RWE), and health economics and outcomes research (HEOR). Here’s what the Launch Pad program offers:

  • A tailored 3-to-6-month training experience, ideal for recent graduates or professionals contemplating a career transition.
  • Direct mentorship and hands-on project experience with seasoned industry experts.
  • We are committed to an inclusive selection process, where every applicant is evaluated solely based on merit, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran status, or disability status. We welcome remote workers and international students with open arms.

Availability in our program is limited, so we encourage you to seize this opportunity to join us at Polygon Health Analytics, where we are committed to close the educational divide and nurture the healthcare innovators of tomorrow. Embark on an enriching career path in RWD/RWE, and HEOR by sending your resume to, ensuring the email subject line reads “Launchpad Program.” We are committed to meticulously reviewing each application and will respond within two weeks.
