I fairly often get requests from employers for graduating students undergraduate or graduate) who know SAS and have skills in economics and econometrics. The work is often "predictive modelling", using econometric techniques with large data bases to predict individual responses to a product or message. The latest such approach comes from a growing financial services firm (about 150 employees) in Toronto. I was told the starting salary was good with the potential for fast salary growth. While ideally they would like a SAS programmer, if you have a programming background (and hence can demonstrate that you could learn SAS quickly), you still might be a good candidate. Please contact me at veall@mcmaster.ca if you think you would be interested and would qualify.


The McMaster student newspaper, the Silhouette, had an article about the "Mac Rockstar" competition in the November 23rd issue, p. C5: "First place went to Selena Dhillon, a third-year Political Science and Economics major..." - McMaster University


Quarters was packed on Wednesday night when the finalists from Mac Rockstar took to the stage. Fuelled by the energy of “Rockstar Live,” a professional backing band featuring ex-members of Moist, the contestants truly shone as their songs came to life.
While the competition was fierce and the talent strong, only three of the finalists emerged as champions. First place went to Selena Dhillon, a third-year Political Science and Economics major, who pulled down a solid rendition of Pink’s “Get This Party Started.”
“Everybody was really good, and the talent was strong,” said an elated Dhillon. “All of my family and friends were there, which was awesome and it felt great to win!”
As winner of Mac Idol Rockstar, Dhillon and a guest will be jetting off to beautiful British Columbia in February for a skit trip, courtesy of Travel Cuts.

Performing with a live band was a first for Dhillon, who found the experience to be exhilarating, and took it as an opportunity to showcase her skills. “I’ve never performed with a band before, so that was a lot of fun. We fed off of each other’s energy, and I felt really comfortable on stage.”
The competition may be over, but these Rockstars are likely just getting started.

Bio

The passion that exudes from her original sound will make you feel what she feels each time she performs, whether it has an up tempo vibe that will get you on your feet or a heart rendering ballad that will give you goose bumps. A force on its own…it is the voice of Selena Dhillon.

Singing since she was a small child it became evident there was something extraordinary she possessed. Listening, dancing and singing to music became her outlet. Selena dedicated hours a night familiarizing with the greatest voices in the industry, from Mariah Carey to Lauryn Hill, meanwhile discovering her own enriched sound and the talent she owned. Nobody could take her out of her own little realm…her parents would attempt to shout over the music and call out, “Selene! Selene!” but at that point ‘Selene’ was in a place of her very own and escaped real life through her dreams of being a star.

Raised in a multi-cultural community, with an east-Indian background, Selena developed an appreciation for all genres of music. She performed a variety of genres through school talent shows always displaying her ability to diversify. Aside from excelling academically she was highly involved in performing arts activities throughout grade school. In her teenage years, she began training and learning technique with a classical instructor in and further understood how to use her instrument in its truest form. Selena competed in an “Idol” competition in her final year of secondary school and won first place. She furthered her studies and began pursuing a degree at McMaster University. With music still entrenched in her soul, Selena worked on various music projects during her time in university providing her with the experience she would need in the next phase of her life, including the development of her songwriting skills. In 2006, Selena competed in the McMaster Idol competition and won first place where she performed in the finals with the Rockstar Live band. Later that year she competed in the Ontario University Idol competition and was a finalist. Upon the completion of her four year honours program at McMaster in spring 2008, Selena made the decision to focus on her music career. The sky is truly the limit. Her voice adapts to any genre of music and with her very own soulful yet edgy R&B sound she shows an audience what ‘Selena Dhillon’ is all about.

She has begun to write all of her own music and incorporate many different styles of music into her songs. She no longer needs to escape reality by imagining her dreams…for her dreams are becoming her reality. With a list already filled with some great accomplishments, now is the time for Selena Dhillon to share her gift with the world…as the best is really yet to come.
