Statistics and Actuarial Science

Statistics deals with techniques for collecting and analyzing numerical data for the purpose of solving real-life problems. Statistical techniques are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, engineering, education, political science, medicine and many other areas. Actuarial science is concerned with the application of mathematical probability to the design of financially sound insurance and pension programs.

What Happens at an Interview

The interviewing process can be scary if you don't know what to expect. All interviews fit a general pattern. While each interview will differ, all will share three common characteristics: the beginning, middle, and conclusion.

The typical interview will last 30 minutes, although some may be longer. A typical structure is as follows:

  • Five minutes--small talk
  • Fifteen minutes--a mutual discussion of your background and credentials as they relate to the needs of the employer
  • Five minutes--asks you for questions
  • Five minute--conclusion of interview
  • As you can see, there is not a lot of time to state your case. The employer may try to do most of the talking. When you do respond to questions or ask your own, your statements should be concise and organized without being too brief.

It Starts Before You Even Say Hello

The typical interview starts before you even get into the inner sanctum. The recruiter begins to evaluate you the minute you are identified. You are expected to shake the recruiter's hand upon being introduced. Don't be afraid to extend your hand first. This shows assertiveness.It's a good idea to arrive at least 15 minutes early. You can use the time to relax. It gets easier later. It may mean counting to ten slowly or wiping your hands on a handkerchief to keep them dry.

How's Your Small Talk Vocabulary?

Many recruiters will begin the interview with some small talk. Topics may range from the weather to sports and will rarely focus on anything that brings out your skills. Nonetheless, you are still being evaluated.Recruiters are trained to evaluate candidates on many different points. They may be judging how well you communicate on an informal basis. This means you must do more than smile and nod.

The Recruiter Has the Floor

The main part of the interview starts when the recruiter begins discussing the organization. If the recruiter uses vague generalities about the position and you want more specific information, ask questions. Be sure you have a clear understanding of the job and the company.As the interview turns to talk about your qualifications, be prepared to deal with aspects of your background that could be construed as negative, i.e., low grade point average, no participation in outside activities, no related work experience. It is up to you to convince the recruiter that although these points appear negative, positive attributes can be found in them. A low GPA could stem from having to fully support yourself through college; you might have no related work experience, but plenty of experience that shows you to be a loyal and valued employee.Many times recruiters will ask why you chose the major you did or what your career goals are. These questions are designed to determine your goal direction. Employers seek people who have direction and motivation. This can be demonstrated by your answers to these innocent-sounding questions.

It's Your Turn to Ask Questions

When the recruiter asks, "Now do you have any questions?" it's important to have a few ready. Dr. C. Randall Powell, author of Career Planning Today, suggests some excellent strategies for dealing with this issue. He says questions should elicit positive responses from the employer. Also, the questions should bring out your interest in and knowledge of the organization. By asking intelligent, well-thought-out questions, you show the employer you are serious about the organization and need more information. It also indicates to the recruiter that you have done your homework.

The Close Counts, Too

The interview isn't over until you walk out the door. The conclusion of the interview usually lasts five minutes and is very important. During this time the recruiter is assessing your overall performance. It is important to remain enthusiastic and courteous. Often the conclusion of the interview is indicated when the recruiter stands up. However, if you feel the interview has reached its conclusion, feel free to stand up first. Shake the recruiter's hand and thank him or her for considering you. Being forthright is a quality that most employers will respect, indicating that you feel you have presented your case and the decision is now up to the employer.

Expect the Unexpected

During the interview, you may be asked some unusual questions. Don't be too surprised. Many times questions are asked simply to see how you react. For example, surprise questions could range from, "Tell me a joke" to "What time period would you like to have lived in?" These are not the kind of questions for which you can prepare in advance. Your reaction time and the response you give will be evaluated by the employer, but there's no way to anticipate questions like these. While these questions are not always used, they are intended to force you to react under some stress and pressure. The best advice is to think and give a natural response.

Evaluations Made by Recruiters

The employer will be observing and evaluating you during the interview. Erwin S. Stanton, author of Successful Personnel Recruiting and Selection, indicates some evaluations made by the employer during the interview include:

  • How mentally alert and responsive is the job candidate?
  • Is the applicant able to draw proper inferences and conclusions during the course of the interview?
  • Does the applicant demonstrate a degree of intellectual depth when communicating, or is his / her thinking shallow and lacking depth?
  • Has the candidate used good judgment and common sense regarding life planning up to this point?
  • What is applicant's capacity for problem-solving activities?
  • How well does candidate respond to stress and pressure? 

Developing a Winning Resume

Resume Formats

There is no "perfect" or "right" resume format.  The format you choose will depend upon the job you hope to find and your past experiences.  Listed below are different resume formats.   Look them over and determine what format or combination of formats will present you in the best possible light.  Remember the purpose of a resume is to get you a job interview.  The interview gets you the job.

 

General Resume Guidelines

 

The following guidelines are just that-guidelines for what to include in a good resume.  Remember, your résumé's function is to obtain a job interview for you.  Use your common sense and imagination to highlight your background and experience in a well-focused resume.

 

Length

 

A one-page resume works well for the recent graduate.  If you have an extensive work history, two pages are reasonable.   Remember individuals with extensive work history should limit information to what is pertinent to their current job objective.  If you do go to two pages, make sure that most important information is stated on the first page.

 

Appearance

 

An organized, readable layout determines whether a resume is read.  Direct the reader's eye with the format.  Make sure it is well organized and concise.  Avoid dense text appearance that is difficult to read.

 

  • Consider using high-quality white or off-white paper.
  • Always type or word process your resume and have it professionally copied.
  • Make sure there are no typographical, spelling, or grammatical errors.
  • Information that has been crossed out or handwritten is unacceptable.
  • Make sure your resume will copy well.  Do a photocopy test.

Content

 

  • Design your resume with a particular objective in mind.  Present information important to the objective first.  Edit.
  • List information in descending order of importance.
  • Be selective about what you include in your resume, but never falsify or exaggerate information.
  • Sell yourself-attract attention to your special abilities.
  • Concentrate on the positive and use action verbs to describe your background.

 Resume Inventory

 

The following categories are usually found in a resume.  These are suggestions.  You should adopt those that best fit your needs.

 

Necessary Categories

 

Personal Data

 

Make sure your name is the most obvious piece of information on your resume.  Also include address and phone number, with ZIP and area codes.  List a message phone number if you do not have an answering machine, and give an e-mail address if you have one.  It is unnecessary to include personal information such as age, marital status, or health.

 

Objective

 

An objective gives your resume a focus.   It also gives credibility and direction to your resume and suggests commitment on your part.  It should be specific enough to tell the employer the kind of work you seek, yet general enough to include the full range of jobs you will consider.  This will take some thought.  If the statement  is so specific that it would eliminate you from consideration for other jobs in which you have interest, you might consider having a resume for each type of job (not necessarily each job).  Some disciplines require objectives; others discourage their use.

 

Education

 

List your educational background in reverse chronological order starting with your highest degree and working your way backwards.   Do not go back to your high school degree.  Listing your grade point average (GPA) is optional.  Dissertation and thesis topics are also included in this section as are honors bestowed at graduation time.

 

Experience

 

This category includes volunteer or intern experiences as well as employment.  Include job titles, employers, responsibilities and dates.  Remember to list the city and state of your place of work.   Concentrate on the positive and use action works.  A statement of the percentage of college expenses earned can be included if you were self-supporting or nearly so.  You may include paid work experience, academic assignments of significant proportion, and extracurricular assignments relative to your desired field of employment, etc.  If your experience has not been relevant to your field of desired employment, you should still include a description of your responsibilities.  Strive to show growth or contributions you made while in each assignment.

 

Additional Information

 

Skills, activities, honors, awards, membership or committees, or in honorary societies, public service, or even language ability can be placed under this, or a more specific category.

 

References

 

It is acceptable to use the phrase, "Available upon request."  Be prepared with a typed list when requested.   Generally a reference sheet will consist of the name, title, business mailing address, and phone number of three to five academic or business references.  Do not use relatives, friends, or other students as references.  Be sure to obtain permission from each person you plan to list.

 

Additional Categories

 

Qualifications or Technical Skills Statement

 

Qualifications or skills may be established from any prior employment, educational achievement, internship, volunteer experience, hobby, or community service.  For your qualifications statement, list your past in terms of skills you have acquired that are relevant to your résumé's objective.  This section is particularly helpful to those who are making a career change or for students whose major is not obviously related to the job objective.

 

Language Ability

 

You can list this section separately as part of the qualifications statement, or in the additional information section if there is a likelihood that this ability will be used by employers.  Specify the language(s) you read, write, and/or speak and your facility in each.

 

Military

 

In the functional resume your military experience can be included in the "Experience" category.  A chronological resume would list military either under a separate heading or in chronological order under "Experience."

 

Publications

 

List articles you have published and those which have been accepted for publication.

 

Research

 

Give the employer insight into your professional abilities and training by listing the past and present research projects in your field in which you have participated.

 

Extracurricular Activities

 

Employers often look to extracurricular activities to indicate how you developed your interests and leadership abilities during college.  The extracurricular activities you list should include organizations in which you have membership and offices you have held.  You may also wish to include awards, honors, hobbies, and interests in this category.  Avoid listing controversial activities particularly those that are political or religious in nature.

 

Action Word List

 

The Web may give you access to job leads, but your success will hinge upon your ability to close the sale during the interview.

 

If the cyberspace boom has not yet compelled you to log on to the Internet, it should at least have grabbed your attention. If you are looking for a job, the Internet is an information superhighway system that gives you access to an ever-growing number of career, employment, and company sites with just a few mouse clicks.

 

At the Starting Line

 

Navigating the information highway is much like driving a paved one. Though you will encounter rush-hour bottlenecks, it's all about how you maneuver the I-way. First, you will need a computer, a modem, a communications program, access to a phone line, and an account with an Internet service provider. These are likely supplied for you (at no cost) on campus, at computer labs, and in residence halls.

 

Today, the most popular way to access the Internet is the World Wide Web (WWW). By using browser software such as Netscape, Mosaic, or NetCruiser, you can travel to countless home pages on the Web. These pages then can link you quickly to various locations with related data. You also can secure a little corner of cyberspace for yourself by creating a personal home page where you can invite visitors- including prospective employers- to get a peek at your career objectives, talents and qualifications.

 

The quickest way to get to a Web site on the Net is to type in its "address," or Uniform Resource Locator (URL). But even if you don't know the address of your destination, you can get started by using a search engine. These are directories for the Internet that allow users to type in the subject or keywords in which they are interested. It then scans existing Web sites for a match. A popular choice is Yahoo! 

 

Usenet Groups

 

Usenet groups, also known as newsgroups or discussion forums, are devoted to a vast array of focused topics, including some on career and job search issues. Usenet group discussions tend to be more well-thought-out than those on chat lines and have standard behaviors-netiquette-that dictate communication. So, before you send a message or respond to a posting, spend some time reading a posting entered by other users.

 

Usenet groups can be a valuable forum to make connections with people, keep up on industry trends, access job listings, and post resumes. To read or post to newsgroups you will need news reader software. If you want to participate in job hunt discussions, check out misc.jobs.misc.

 

View the Net From the Employer's Perspective

 

Employers from corporate America to government agencies are increasingly turning   to the Net. They are hunting actively for talent through employment bulletin boards, commercial resume data banks, and their own corporate home pages. A recruiter from Tandem Computers in Cupertino, Calif., says enthusiastically: "I love the Web. It gave me the solution I had been looking for - a fast and cost-effective way to direct computer-literate candidates to a database. We went live on the Web with our home page in 1994. We post job openings, college recruiting dates, and other employment-related information; but most importantly, we give our home page visitors an intimate look at Tandem."

 

Preparing Your Electronic Resume

 

You may choose to send your resume via e-mail or post it on databases located on commercial online services, bulletin boards, newsgroups, or mailing lists. Remember that the Internet is predominately a text-based (not voice/ video-based) tool. The first impressions you make during your job search are always the strongest, so it's critical that the application letter and resume you send via email immediately set the right tone with the reader.

 

Figuring out how to get discovered and stand out on employers' computer monitors is actually quite simple. The answer is, keywords! Today's Internet search programs leverage keywords. Pay attention to the job descriptions, skills, and talents the employer is seeking. Use these keywords in your application and resume so that they naturally fit the keyword searches a hiring manager would use when scanning the resume databases.

 

One successful Internet job seeker offers this advice: When applying for jobs on-line, don't send your resume as an attachment to an e-mail message. Create it in ASCII [plain text] and make sure it is clear and easy to read. Since plain text does not allow you to do much with formatting and layout, it is doubly important to present your experience in a cohesive, orderly manner . I tried to leave the format as naked as possible, brought my most relevant information to the top of my resume, and used clear, vibrant language."

 

Close the Sale the Old-Fashioned Way

 

Placing your electronic resume on-line is one thing, but getting a job is quite another. The Web may give you access to job leads, but your success will hinge upon your ability to close the sale during the interview. Since organizations put so much information on their Web sites, you can conduct your research in a fraction of the time you would use through traditional means. So there's really no excuse for not being prepared for your interviews. Be sure to give as much consideration to interviews which you have obtained through on-line job searches as you would to those received through more traditional means. And finally, follow up with a thank you e-mail.
