Committee on Career Development to Sponsor Soft Skills Panel

1 July 2017 7 views No Comment

The ASA Committee on Career Development (CCD) will sponsor a professional development panel, titled “Statistical Soft Skills: They’re Essential,” at JSM in Baltimore this summer. Five prominent statisticians will serve as panelists, answering questions and discussing how to develop and use nonstatistical soft skills.

The committee is also co-sponsoring a session with the Section on Statistical Consulting, “Challenges and Reward of Major Career Changes.”

Details of these two events can be found in the online program.

Members of the CCD will also staff an information table, answering questions and taking suggestions.

Looking Forward

CCD members will continue planning for JSM 2018—to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia—and search for other ways to support the membership. At present, CCD plans to launch webinars focused on the essential soft skills that can aid statisticians in their career development.

To offer suggestions about what the CCD can do to most affect your career development, contact a committee member or drop by the information table at JSM.
