Invitation to an Introduction to GNU-R

Posted on September 24, 2010 at 7:51am 2 Comments

I'll be giving a talk[1] in October to introduce people to GNU-R[2] - a popular and free statistical language and computing environment.

The talk is being hosted by the Manchester Free Software group[3] and will be held at the Madlab[4] on 19/10/10 19:00-20:30.



Naturally I'll be taking questions on the day but if you can think of any particular topics that you would like me to cover then please post a comment with your suggestions.



I look forward to seeing you… Continue

As you've no doubt learned, work experience is vital. My first break came when, after many knock-backs, I applied for a job that I thought was "beneath" my skills/ salary expectations. I wasn't in the post long before my new employer realised what I was worth and I was soon promoted. It's very hard to convince people of your worth without having credentials to back-up your abilities (I'm afraid academic qualifications alone are insufficient). You might consider volunteering (charities will welcome analytical support) to build-up your CV.

The general rule for job searching is to keep your options open - keep thinking of alternatives. If you can't find work in statistical/ analytical businesses then apply for analytical jobs in other industries.

Keep your chin up, and don't let the rejections grind you down!

Let me know how you get on...
