PSI Book Club
PSI are starting a book club! We will be reading/discussing non-technical books relevant to our roles. Participants will be split into smaller groups to network with each other and practice exercises.
Exhibitor registration is now closed for our Virtual Medical Statistics Careers Event 2022.
For the exhibition session, we welcome representatives from any pharmaceutical companies, CROs, CTUs and other organisations working within the field of Medical Statistics, including any universities who run an MSc or PhD in Statistics, or have statistical consulting groups.
This year there will be no limit to the number of company attendees per exhibitor stand. Each company attendee will have their own schedule to book meetings with students. For more detail about how scheduling will work you can view these resources.
Don't forget to familiarise yourself with the important pre-event milestones to ensure you are all set up and ready to go for the day of the event!
Virtual career events are online 'events' that allow exhibitors and students to meet in virtual environments such as through voice calls or video chat rooms, and offer a number of advantages to both students and exhibitors! Exhibitors enjoy lower recruiting costs through the ability to virtually screen quality candidates, receive electronic CVs and save time and costs associated with travelling to participate in face-to-face events.
We will be working with Career Fair Plus to host our upcoming virtual career event, to create an intuitive, user-friendly experience for students and exhibitors. Check out this video demo to see how it works!
When registering for this event, please ensure the email address provided will be able to receive mail from *.careerfairplus.com. You may need to contact your IT team to help add this to the allowed list of domains from which you can receive emails.
Ideally, the email address entered in the registration form is your own company email address, which you check regularly, and with which you can set up your account on Career Fair Plus. You will receive an invitation to join Career Fair Plus on 2nd February 2022, at which point you will be able to invite your other company volunteers to the system.
We will follow up with more detailed instructions in due course, but if you want to get a head start, check out some of these resources.

Virtual exhibition session hosted on Career Fair Plus app. Students attend their pre-scheduled appointments with company volunteers.
NB: You can use the Career Fair Plus app on your smart phone, tablet or desktop PC.
If you chose to download the Career Fair Plus app, you can use it alongside the desktop version to mark candidates as no-shows, and add private notes and/or ratings for your candidates which you can then export at the end of the fair (video). The app also has an integrated timer to help you stay on track.
If you experience any issues during the exhibition session please visit us at the PSI CALC Helpdesk.
