Career-advice seminar at the University of Toronto – Wednesday, February 7, 2018

I am excited to visit the University of Toronto on Wednesday, February 7, to share my career advice in a seminar and in a question-and-answer session.  Both events will be in the Debates Room at Hart House.  Hart House is located at 7 Hart House Circle in Toronto, Ontario.  The Debates Room is on the second floor of Hart House.

Eric Cai - Official Head Shot

  • My presentation will occur from 11 am to 12 pm.
  • I will answer questions in an open forum from 1 pm to 2 pm.

I will talk about

  • my diverse jobs in industrial statistics, medicine, banking, and marketing analytics since earning my Master’s degree in statistics
  • the skills that my jobs demand but I did not learn in my formal education in statistics
  • effective strategies for finding a job in statistics
  • building an online brand as a statistician
  • developing a meaningful career in a systematic way
  • important steps that students can take during their studies to prepare for a career outside of academia

I strongly encourage all attendees to read my career-advice columns in advance, especially “How to Find a Job in Statistics – Advice for Students and Recent Graduates“.

If you will attend this event, then please feel free to come and say “Hello”!

I thank Jeffrey Negrea and Dr. Radu Craiu from the University of Toronto for their help in coordinating this event.  Jeffrey is the president of the Statistics Graduate Student Union, and Dr. Craiu is the Associate Chair for Graduate Affairs in the Department of Statistical Sciences.
