From artificial intelligence to network security to hardware design, it is well-known that computing research drives many important technological and societal advancements. However, less is known about the long-term career paths of the people behind these innovations. What do their careers reveal about the evolution of computing research? Which institutions were and are the most important in this field, and for what reasons? Can insights into computing career trajectories help predict employer… Expand
Quantifying the Impact of Human Capital, Job History, and Language Factors on Job Seniority with a Large-scale Analysis of Resumes
TLDR
It is found that previous experience forms the most important factor, outweighing other aspects of human capital, and the groundwork for future inquiry in career trajectories using large scale data analysis and natural language processing techniques is laid. Expand
Career Trajectory Prediction based on CNN
TLDR
A convolutional neural network model is constructed to address the career trajectory prediction problem of job seekers' resumes from the internet and it is verified on a real-world dataset with 70,000 resumes. Expand
Automated Discovery and Classification of Training Videos for Career Progression
TLDR
This work implemented a system to automate the collection and classification of training videos to help job seekers identify and acquire the skills necessary to transition to the next step in their career. Expand
Discovering Archetypes to Interpret Evolution of Individual Behavior
TLDR
A novel Gaussian Hidden Markov Model (G-HMM) Cluster to identify archetypes of evolutionary patterns of individual evolution in large social networks is introduced and strong quantitative results with competing baselines for activity prediction and perplexity are found. Expand
DBGE: Employee Turnover Prediction Based on Dynamic Bipartite Graph Embedding
TLDR
Experiments on a real-world dataset collected from one of China’s largest online professional social networks show that the features learned through DBGE can significantly improve turnover prediction performance and achieves better performance in the link prediction and visualization task than other graph embedding methods. Expand
Hubs and authorities of the scientific migration network
TLDR
This work studies international migrations of researchers, scientists, and academics from a complex-network perspective to identify the central countries involved in the migration phenomenon and showcases how to employ network visualization to evince temporal evolutions of ego-networks of selected hubs and authorities. Expand
When to Remember Where You Came from: Node Representation Learning in Higher-order Networks
TLDR
This work proposes a node representation learning framework called EVO or Embedding Variable Orders, which captures non-Markovian dependencies by combining work on higher-order networks with work on node embeddings, and shows that EVO outperforms baselines in tasks where high-order dependencies are likely to matter. Expand
Measuring scientific brain drain with hubs and authorities: A dual perspective
TLDR
The global scientific migration network is built to identify the most important countries involved in the mobility of scholars, and to study their role at a local and a global scale, to better understand the so-called “brain drain” phenomenon. Expand

Modeling professional similarity by mining professional career trajectories
TLDR
It is proposed, that using the temporal and structural features of a career trajectory for modeling profile similarity is a far more superior approach than using similarity measures on semi-structured attribute representation of a profile for this application. Expand
Career on the Move: Geography, Stratification, and Scientific Impact
TLDR
Over 420,000 papers are examined, to track the affiliation information of individual scientists, allowing them to reconstruct their career trajectories over decades, finding that career movements are not only temporally and spatially localized, but also characterized by a high degree of stratification in institutional ranking. Expand
Science PhD Career Preferences: Levels, Changes, and Advisor Encouragement
TLDR
Insight is provided into the career preferences of junior scientists across the life sciences, physics, and chemistry and shows that the attractiveness of academic careers decreases significantly over the course of the PhD program, despite the fact that advisors strongly encourage academic careers over non-academic careers. Expand
The misleading narrative of the canonical faculty productivity trajectory
TLDR
It is shown that the canonical narrative of “rapid rise, gradual decline” describes only about one-fifth of individual faculty, and the remaining four-fifths exhibit a rich diversity of productivity patterns, suggesting existing models and expectations for faculty productivity require revision. Expand
On Analyzing Job Hop Behavior and Talent Flow Networks
TLDR
This paper develops several metrics to measure how much work experience is needed to take up a job and how recent/established the job is, and examines how these metrics correlate with the propensity of hopping to derive insights on talent flow as well as job and organizational competitiveness. Expand
Talent Circle Detection in Job Transition Networks
TLDR
A talent circle detection model is developed and the corresponding learning method is designed, which can achieve much higher modularity when comparing to the benchmark approaches, as well as high precision and recall for talent exchange prediction. Expand
Systematic inequality and hierarchy in faculty hiring networks
TLDR
It is found that faculty hiring follows a common and steeply hierarchical structure that reflects profound social inequality and increased institutional prestige leads to increased faculty production, better faculty placement, and a more influential position within the discipline. Expand
Universal trajectories of scientific success
TLDR
A large-scale study of the rise and fall of scientific success by analyzing the success of two major scientific entities—papers and authors—in Computer Science and Physics is presented and it is believed that this study will argue in favor of revising the existing metrics used for quantifying scientific success. Expand
A Review of Two Decades of Correlations, Hierarchies, Networks and Clustering in Financial Markets
TLDR
This document is a preliminary version of an in-depth review on the state of the art of clustering financial time series and the study of correlation networks and will form a basis for implementation of an open toolbox of standard tools to study correlations, hierarchies, networks and clustering in financial markets. Expand
Ranking Universities Based on Career Outcomes of Graduates
TLDR
This paper addresses challenges holistically by developing a novel methodology for ranking and recommending universities for different professions on the basis of career outcomes of professionals who graduated from those schools by applying it on LinkedIn's Economic Graph data. Expand
