I am graduating high school this year and i am interested in learning the requirments to become a Market research analyst.
What is the job description? I heard that you get to test products before they come out on the market, is that true?
What kind of college degree would i need to get?
Im heading to college and would like to beceome a Market Research Analyst or something in a related field. I enjoy doing research and working with computers. What should I study?
I have a bachelor's degree in marketing (minor in statistics) and I want to become a market research analyst. I have been offered a position at Gallup to conduct phone interviews.
Should I take this position? Would phone interviewing experience make my resume stand out? Do you think I can leverage the position to become a full market research analyst? How can I leverage my position to advance my career?
I am a market research analyst. My husband and I are moving to Tennesse, and I'm not sure what the top market research companies are. I need to find a job there.
As a high school student, I'm pondering what exactly I'm going to do as far as a future career. Though I really want to be a journalist, I know that I have to do something that makes a tad bit more money to sustain my current lifestyle.
To help me with my decision, can someone please give me an layout of what a day in the life of a marketing research analyst is?
Thanks in advance. =D
What are some good entry-level positions other than sales that I can start out doing if I want to be a Marketing Research Analyst?
I'm a college student majoring in marketing and I'm considering pursuing a career as a market research analyst. Is this an enjoyable career for those who have pursued it? How are the salaries and perks? What are the drawbacks? Also would you say a mathematical background is critical for this job? Thanks for any insight you can offer. =)
I have been working in Fund accounting in Ireland for a little over two years and desperately want to get out of it. I have a degree in Business Studies and a Masters in Economics. I find Fund Accounting boring and repititive and i really want a change. I'm not 100?ure what area in Finance i want to pursue - however i am sure that Fund Accounting is not for me and I have no desire to complete the ACCA exams either. The problem is when i apply for other jobs (such as Investment analyst, credit analyst, marketing research analyst etc ) I either get no response or get told that they want someone who already has experience in the area. I have looked a little into CFA exams and it seems like something i would like to do in the future. Some agencies have advised that i should start these exams myself and then i might have more chance of getting into these kind of roles - but i don't want to start these exams now as i would like to try out some of these roles first to help decide which one is for me ( i would hope to work for a company who would sponsor me instead) ! Any advice?
I have a job offer in which I would be working 3 main functions, doing financial analysis, marketing database development and maintainence, and working on marketing and operations projects. I currently have an analyst title (marketing research analyst), and would rather have a title that indicates a promotion, as it is a pretty hefty salary increase. The company has indicated they are flexible with they title, which they have named Senior Business Analyst. (the senior part doesn't do it for me in terms of showing what I would like to) I don't know if they would go for an AVP title, but if they would, AVP of what? Marketing and Finance? They do not have an AVP in either role currently, though they have a number of AVP's in other areas. They might be more apt to choose something in between Sr. Analyst and AVP. But what would that be? The position reports to the EVP/CFO and is under the Finance area. This is the banking industry. Thanks in advance!
Hi , I'm 29yrs old. I'm having more than 5yrs of sales+marketing experience.Now I'm looking for in house job like marketing research analyst,marketing consultant,business analyst.Please suggest me the better path.
My college degree is in Business Administration and I'm currently looking entry-level jobs that can lead up to being a Marketing Research Analyst.
I love the actual data gathering part of marketing research. I love doing surveys and using the data from those surveys to make charts & graphs. Most importantly, I HATE public speaking. I have 5 years of college under my belt and I feel as though my public speaking skills have gotten even worse. Even talking in front of small groups of say 3-5 people is hard for me.
My question is this: Are there any jobs in Marketing Research that don't require public speaking? Thanks a bunch.
I have studied economics and my knowledge of marketing is sketchy. I know about cross tabs. Basically I am looking for a Market research job where I use my data analysis skills . What would be the name of such a position?
I've graduated with a Bachelor of Business Management with a major in Finance and am currently pursuing the CFA designation. I have been looking through job sites and the classified ads for jobs of such a position but there do not seem to be any. So how does one begin a career as a research analyst?
Currently I am a senior in college with a major in communication studies, emphasis in public relations, and I have a minor in international business. I've also taken 3 semesters of statistics courses and studied abroad in France. Is this a strong college background to start to work in market research? What are some entry-level jobs that I should look for in market research/marketing? Would a marketing internship help prepare me for a career in market research? Other suggestions please?
So I have a Chemistry major and math minor. I got a job offer as Market Research Assistant. It's temporary and rather low-paying but I'm sure it will be a valuable experience for me. Will having this experience for a few years help me set my foot in becoming a market search analyst? I'm interested in doing market research in pharm/biotech industries.
I am starting my MBA from next fall semester and currently I am thinking of taking Market Research Analysis as my specialization. Since I am on F1 visa now, it is extremely important for me to get a job that will give me a good chance in getting H1B visa once I get the job. Do most of the companies that work of Market Research Analysis offer H1B sponsorships for their employees?
Companies and Firms that hire Market Research Analyst?
Is it possible to get jobs like Market Research Analyst and other Research and/or Analyst type jobs if I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics?
I think a Degree in Economics would be better, but due to certain reasons, I prefer to take Mathematics.
I appreciate any and all answers. :)
Recently I learned of an opportunity to join a GREAT company as a Marketing Analyst in charge of print advertising. I know first hand (someone close to me works there, and formerly held this role) that most of the applicants are recent college grads with little to no "real-life" job experience but have the degree. I on the other hand am still working on my degree but have TONS of work experience. I have held a number of types of jobs ranging from Apartment Manager to Accountant to (most recently) Sales as I have been in the work force for the last 13 years.
In each of the roles I've held, there has been elements of marketing - i.e. desktop publishing, market research and studys, competitor comparisons, etc. and of course in sales I've developed a number of skills as well.
The person hiring (I've already talked with him) is asking me to tailor my resume to highlight my skills from a marketing perspective...and I'm stuck. Can anyone offer any advice?
