SAS has a long history of supporting Academia and of helping our customers meet their needs for talented people across Australia. One key way in which we do this is through the SAS Work Placement Program, a part of SAS’ Academic Outreach Initiative. The SAS Work Placement Program helps match STEM university students with SAS skills to SAS customers. It allows organisations the chance to offer students an opportunity to demonstrate their skills using SAS solutions and allows students to put their theoretical study into practice, giving them real world experience in a corporate environment, across a range of industries. Two organisations that have benefited from the Work Placement Program are Flexigroup and Nine Network.
We are inviting Australia citizens, permanent residence and International students with working rights within Australia, penultimate and final year STEM students from SAS-sponsored University courses and/or those students who have participated in the SAS Programming 1, SAS Statistics 1 or SAS Programming for R Users, via eLearning courses or have completed the SAS Visual Analytics & Visual Statistics tutorials, to apply.
