Needing suggestions

Hello Guys

I am an individual SAS learner, passed base and advanced certification and working hard on preparing the test on SAS statistical business analyst certification, because I changed my career from working in the supermarket to a business analysis job, so I didn't have any hand on experiences working as an analyst, please tell give me some suggestions on how I can or where I can gain some work experiences as a SAS programmer, even without paid jobs.

Thanks in advance.

We're still relatively new, so I wouldn't rely on it as the sole source of your finding either a job or internship, but take a look at and sign up at my website: analystfinder.com

Look for Open Data or Data for Good/DataKind or hackathon initiatives around you where what tool you use doesn't matter. 

Additionally, you can look at Kaggle type problems though SAS doesn't work with Kaggle or DrivenData is also a good option. 

 

For visibility you can choose to blog or participate in your local SAS user groups. Those are the best ways to gain visibility and possibly get access to jobs.
