This last week has been frantically busy, not just for me, but for the people around me as well. Everyone I talk to feels exhausted and is counting down to their last day at work. There is the pressure of getting your work done before leave while at the same time attending office parties and social get-togethers with friends.
For some of our members the end of year comes with major changes. I am talking about our student members who completed their final year at uni this year. Congratulations! You did it! A new life is waiting for you!
If you are leaving university life, your uni email address may no longer be valid. Please don’t forget to update your email address in the membership portal of the SSA website, so we can stay in touch. You can also email me if you would like me to update it for you.
Now that you are entering the workforce as a fully-fledged statistician, keep in mind that when your membership renewal comes around next time, you will be entitled to three years of Early Career membership at half the price of full membership.
If you are looking for a job, our Career Centre may be a good place to post your resume. Please also see the tips below.
You may also consider applying for GStat Accreditation. If you attended one of SSA’s accredited courses, going through the application process is just a formality. Should you have completed a course that was not accredited by the Society it’s not too complicated either. We just ask for more detailed information about the course contents of your subjects.
GStat Accreditation is a great way to show potential employers not only that your qualifications have been vetted by the Statistical Society, it also indicates a dedication to your profession that will set you apart from other job applicants. So why not spend your summer break working on your GStat application?
