Some points for future interns at DecisionStats-

  1. We normally dont pay interns anything
  2. 80 % interns drop out or are let go because they cannot keep up with the assignments
  3. Remaining 20% usually learn a lot in the intensive program
  4. Internships are like a free boot camp
  5. No more internships till June 2017 because I am trying to write a book
  6. Some research assistantships might be available in December 2016 to help with some code or Lyx formatting for the former
  7. See my LinkedIn profile for reviews given by the 20% interns who manage to stick around
  8. I usually emphasize writing, polyglot tools (both R, SAS and Python) , logical thinking and concise communication for my interns
  9. I usually treat them as students since I dont work for or in a university. That might change as I try and transition out from business to academic research options for a non Phd
