Subject: SAS Career Info - Advice Please
I have 12 years SPSS, Minitab, a lot of Computing, a Maths degree,
a little Science background, a teacher qual. My 12 years have been
spent working for a university. I'd like to move and work as a
Biostatistician working with drug trials, but I have no SAS
experience. I hope to complete an M.Sc. in Biometrics from
Reading (assuming I can get a place on the course!). What I'd
like to know is how big a step is it moving from SPSS to SAS and
has anyone on the list got a similiar background to mine and
moved into the SAS/drug trial world? I'd like to hear your opinions
for/against? I would have thought that with my experience my
learning curve would be quite quick.
I would also be interested in the prospects for employment after
the M.Sc. in Europe. I am 37 at the moment ... so there's still
some life in this old dog yet!!!
Thanks for all yer help!!! Greatly appreciated.
