there are so many different types of banking programs now so confusing. at least they should share if u get offered which dept ur working in & whats the job scope so that ppl can have better idea.

i went to the dbs website & all of the description is a bunch of mumbo jumbo BS. all that is for sure is this job involves statistical analysis of data

Anyway, ash23, may I know wat is your educational background? what major are you from?
more banks still use excel. what sexier name than an excel analyst? just call them analytics, they say.

SAS is expensive and requires special knowledge. if they need SAS people, the jd will state this.

a rule of thumb is to look at the job requirements, not the description.

nowadays it's high tech everywhere. all you need to do is to press button, the computer will analyze everything for you.

which was stated in the graduate program. Anyway, banks are probably one of the biggest customer of SAS. I highly doubt any analytics unit in banks uses excel. Maybe for some simple number crunching, but definitely not the main tool. Banks are no stranger to both SAS and data analytics.

And you don't need special knowledge to use SAS. Anyone with some programming background can pick up the basics for SAS over a weekend.. of cos, more time is required if you want to dive deeper. But SAS is definitely not hard to use.

And to the poster@12:14AM
if you can analyze everything with a click of a button, that will no longer be considered analytics.

I received the email stating they will get back to me regarding interview as well. For the rest who have received the same, can I know your honors class or CAP range?
