Moving from Academia to Private Practice (303259)*Kim Love-Myers, University of Georgia
Keywords: consulting, collaboration, private practice, career change
Starting a private practice, whether full time or part time, is a career goal that is common to many statisticians with consulting experience. This poster presentation will explore the professional, legal, financial, and personal sides of this transition from the perspective of a collaborative statistician who has very recently made that career change. While this presentation will refer specifically to the experience of transferring from an academic position to a full-time private consulting practice, it will be helpful to anyone thinking of starting a full time or part time consulting practice. Web resources will be recommended for those looking for additional support.
