Student Placement Articles

PSI also holds a competition for people to write an account of their career experiences so far – the recent winning articles are below:

Andrew (programmer)
"I did not know what to expect as far as day-to-day work was concerned so I was pleasantly surprised to find I was not chained to the desk all day."

Celine (statistician)
"It is just very nice to know that whatever issue you might have, you will find someone who will be able to help you. I really feel like I can benefit from other people’s experiences, and that is really appreciable."

Dave (statistician)
"...before that interview I could have written all the information I knew about the pharmaceutical industry on a back of a postage stamp and could still have room left over for me to list all the Beethoven’s hits I know!"

Matt (programmer)
"In my short time spent within the industry the role has provided me with the challenges and goals I require, and I look forward to my future as a statistical programmer in the pharmaceutical industry."

Nick (statistician)
"To be honest, if somebody had told me back when I was an even younger lad that "when I was older" I would be a biostatistician there would’ve been a number of sequential reactions:
1. A bio wha…?
2. What’s a bio-statistican…?
3. Possible laughter, an explanation of where that thought could be put, or a combination of both."
