Recently, the Mathematics department of Lady Doak College, Madurai, appointed me as a external syllabus review committee member for the period of 2017 to 2018. I have attended the first meeting on last 10th February 2017. I took this opportunity and gave a talk among final year students on the title “How to get gold?” In this talk I explained them the current job opportunities in statistics and what are all the additional skills sets required to pursue the career. The reason to choose this title is the need of statisticians in any and all kind of domains. Comparatively, statisticians gets highly paid job then the other domains when they have a right skill sets in front. Interestingly, after the session I got couple of emails from students seeking further guidance. This showed a positive review and the department head and staffs were happy and thanked for this initiative.
Happy on promoting Statistics!
