Subject: revised salary
I will be completing my masters program (MPH) in Biostatistics from
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, US. I have done well in school (GPA
3.9). I have used SAS for almost one and half year as part of my research
assistantship. I have used BASE, STAT and GRAPH. I have written macros and
have done programming in IML. In my limited experience I have enjoyed data
manipulation and writing macros the most. I have touched ODS a little bit.
I have done statistical analysis but I like programming much more.
I have taken courses in JAVA , Visual Basic and Lisp. I have written a word
search program in JAVA (for text analysis) and have made some applets.
Problem solving fascinates me the most. I want to develop my self as SAS
programmer. I am not interested in any particular sector (Govt., Industry
or Academia). I want to go to a sector that uses my problem solving skills
and my knowledge of SAS and other programming languages. I would like to
learn about other features of SAS. I think this information is much more
important than expected salary.
I am an international student, so I am looking for a permanent job. I am
single and ready to go anywhere as long as job is exciting.
I need advice regarding where to apply and how to plan my career.
