The Penn State Department of Statistics, in partnership with the University’s Statistics Club, will host a semester-long webinar series to connect current Penn State undergraduate students with alumni of the statistics program who will share their stories, highlighting the diverse career paths that are possible with a degree in statistics.
Through informal discussions with alumni at different stages of their careers — early (3-5 years after graduation), mid (12-15 years after graduation), and senior (25-30 years after graduation) — the series aims to help students envision their own career trajectories by providing a window into the lives of statistics professionals: what they are able to do with their degrees and the skills they acquired during their education at Penn State.
The first session, to be held via Zoom webinar from 1 to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13, will feature alumnus Dan Kapinos, who graduated from Penn State in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in statistics and is now a partner in Aon’s Rewards Solutions practice and head of the company’s Equity Services team.
Registration is required. Interested parties can find more information and sign up for the first session on the statistics department website.
