SCYP Student Certificated

"I started my SCYP experience in September 2014. New for me was to follow an online course as well as a programming course. A classroom training at SAS was really helpful for downloading the required software and I learned the importance of performing my SAS skills, especially to find my dream job. 

I succeeded the certification exam in February 2015 which gave me the feeling to move in the right direction in my professional career. I started to apply for a job in April 2015 and was very impressed that so many companies require an extensive knowledge of SAS. 

I signed my contract in an international big pharmaceutical company (Novartis) in June and started working in Switzerland. I should say that SAS helped me very well to find this unique job opportunity so I recommend the SCYP program for all students in my field (Bio-statistics and Clinical Research). "

“As soon as I heard of the certification via my university (Catholic University Leuven) - of the program as well as of the fact I probably would have to use SAS for my courses/thesis - I quickly enrolled. There was also an opportunity to follow a couple of other courses at SAS institute in Tervuren, which I did as well. They included help with installation and intensive training. The course itself was a nice challenge but still very manageable in combination with my studies.

I passed the certification in December 2014, first. Some benefits were immediately noticeable: I was able to write the necessary codes in SAS for my thesis, I gained an adequate programming basis for next endeavors, I met a lot of like-minded people and I was able to see how data analysis could impact a business through the 3-day bootcamp, which was very enlightening for my unexperienced self.

I started applying for jobs somewhere around the beginning of March and received a contract offer from my current employer in mid-April (which meant I skipped the job event) where I am currently working as a data modeler. Although I do not work with SAS at the moment, the insights and programming knowledge I gained in the SCYP, still adds value to my work and serves as the perfect addition to my academic background.”

"As a young and ambitious person, I didn't want to work just for any company. At SAS, you’re valued as a person, you collaborate with motivated and skilled people and work with cutting-edge technologies that make the difference in the way our customers work with their data. That’s why I love working for SAS and why I’m motivated to go to work every single day.”

"From defining the business requirements to presenting the reports, I always felt that my contributions were valued and that I was not “just another intern”. The hands-on experience of my internship was the best preparation for my work as consultant.”
