"Timely" -- as in you're currently looking for an analytics-related job? If so, what are you finding out there in the job market?

Right! Adam's advice for approaching a job employment opportunity is universal rather than limited to analytics positions. That makes it well worth sharing on a widespread basis!

I really hate to see what has happened to Internships.  It was  how I got my start, and when I was doing it I was fortunate enough to get paid as well - that is for the most part is a foreign  concept to most employers now.

Some companies realizing that they can get this labor for free, have more interns ( unemployed ) than they do actual employees.

Looks like a good thing has been ruined.

These are great tips for getting an Analytics job or any job actually.  I think being prepared for the interview, continuous improvement and humility are major structural foundations necessary to gaining employment in Analytics or any other area.

I'm glad you have had such positive experiences. Many are not as fortunate. Just today:

(Reuters) - PBS talk show host Charlie Rose and his production company will pay roughly $110,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by former unpaid interns, under an agreement approved by a New York state judge.

The victory, another win on the wages front for interns, comes amid a wave of lawsuits that followed a June 11 ruling by a federal judge in Manhattan that former production interns for the 2010 film "Black Swan" were de facto employees of Fox Searchlight Pictures.

In the so-called glamour industries of film, publishing and other media, unpaid internships are standard. The cost-saving practice has spread to other businesses, prompting experts to predict that litigation in more traditional fields could be next.

I'm actually very surprised that people on here are saying how bad internships are. I am currently on my 6th internship. At each internship, I have been treated as full-time staff, have been paid very well (a few even gave me the same benefits as full-time employees), and I've come away with great learning experiences. Are there "internships" where you are not paid and treated like dirt? Of course. The key is for the student to do their homework before signing the offer letter.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
