The Junior Professional Program is a program offered at many of the SAS regional users group conferences that is designed to help support professionals who have started their career and are using SAS as part of their work. Conferences are a great source of professional development. Many companies have limited budgets for professional development, so it’s often the more senior level employees who are sponsored by their companies to attend and present at these types of events. The Junior Professional Program is designed to support the junior level professional, one who has been in their role and using SAS for less than 3 years.
The NESUG conference will be held in Baltimore, Maryland at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, November 11-14, 2012. This conference provides a great opportunity to learn some of the newest tips and techniques that you can immediately apply on the job. There are sessions for all experience levels and lots of social events so you can share and learn from other SAS users. There is still time to apply for the NESUG Junior Professional Grant to attend this year’s conference. The application deadline has been extended to May 30, so apply today for this great opportunity.
If you are still in school and haven’t started your career just yet, there’s a program for you as well. NESUG is also offering a Student Scholarship Program to attend the conference. The application deadline has been extended to May 30 so apply today. This is a great conference to learn some new SAS techniques and to build out your network of contacts in industries looking to hire those with SAS skills.
