Ask yourself the following:
1. Do you have an analytical mind and feel you are not fully using your smarts to solve real-life problems?
2. Do you enjoy a fast-paced environment and feel energized when sharp colleagues poke holes in your claims?
3. Are you good with the computer and can do Excel/VBA, Access, and SAS in your dream?
4. Are you a good listener and does your response factor in your audience
