HOT statistician ROLES with Fforde Management

HOT statistician ROLES with Fforde Management

Yes, that's right. They are now advertising applied statistician jobs using porn spam terms.

Let's see what else is in here (snipped):


I’m touching [touching] base to inform you of the great opportunities that Fforde Management is currently working on [and working out, you buff statistician, you], as you wanted to be kept updated on new Statistician roles. Here are a few of the roles we have — [do statisticians have roles? I thought actors had roles and statisticians had jobs] pass this information along to someone you know who is looking.

Sr. Statistician office-based in (RTP) N.C. with a great CRO. PERM JOB (Competitive salary & great benefit package) 5 YRS PLUS in clinical trials.

Statistician with PK-PD experience for an office-based global CRO located in (RTP) N.C. PERM JOB (Competitive salary & great benefit package) 4 YRS PLUS in clinical trials.

Statistician with 3 YRS PLUS in Clinical trials for (PERM) Office-based in NJ working with one of the largest Pharma’s in the world. (Competitive salary & great benefit package)

Presumably, if I was a hot prospect, I'd understand this. RTP is probably Research Triangle Park, PERM JOB is free hair styling, but what's CRO? According to Acronym Finder, this is "Chemical Release Observation", which I guess makes sense for a pharma job, but "office-based global CRO" sounds like people fart a lot after lunch.

Note this firm is not looking for just anybody who's a standard deviate. They are selective:

**Please note that Fforde Management does not have any roles for anyone outside of the Pharma realm or who has less than 3 YRS experience working in the clinical trial industry.
