Career Development: Discovering Secrets of a Successful Statistical Career (FREE EVENT) — Professional Development Personal Skills Development
ASA , Committee on Career Development
The ASA Committee for Career Development is aware that undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty in statistics or related departments, are interested in exploring potential career opportunities outside academia (e.g., industry, government, research organizations). Choosing from an ever-widening menu of nonacademic career choices can be daunting. This is also true for experienced statisticians who are in various stages of their statistical careers and contemplating switching jobs and/or application domains. The committee also recognizes that there are many statisticians starting from a master's or bachelor's degree and that not everyone will or will want to find a job in a large multinational company. What are the building blocks for a career, beyond finding a starting position? What do employers look for to maximize impact within their organizations? The goal of this panel discussion is to help address practical questions like these and thereby help session attendees with their career planning and development. All the panelists are rising or established leaders in their respective organizations. Their backgrounds and experiences cover a diverse array of statistical applications, which they will describe in their short presentations prior to the panel discussion with the audience.
