Kick start your career in analytics! With an industry skills gap looming, and an estimated 85% of Fortune 500 organizations unable to effectively exploit big data, now is the perfect time to supplement your SAS skills with hands-on work experience within a SAS customer organization.

The SAS Work Placement Program can place you – a SAS-skilled analytics student – into a short-term placement in some of the largest companies in Australia and New Zealand. Grab the opportunity not only to boost your existing academic training with real-world data experience, but also to get valuable industry exposure that will jump you ahead of the field.

The program is relatively flexible and we will do our best to match your selected industry, desired career path, location and program duration to an appropriate organisation.

More about SAS:

Data is more than just facts and figures. It can tell a story – the past, the present and, potentially, the future of an organisation, an industry or even a nation. But without a good storyteller to bring it to life, data is like an unwritten book. It's our job at SAS to be great storytellers. With our advanced analytics tools, we transform data into insights that tell the true story about an organisation. We help people understand what's really working in their businesses, fix what isn't and discover new opportunities.

For 40 years we've been giving our customers the power to know. If you want to hear more about those great stories we keep talking about, our customer stories tell a powerful tale about how the use of SAS' advanced analytics is transforming our customer's worlds.
