Market Research Internship

Decision Associates
Posted: Thursday Jul 6th, 2017

Decision Associates, the region's leading business consulting group, seeks candidates for an internship focused on market research and data analysis. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn alongside accomplished executive consultants on high level issues across a wide range of industries. This is a paid, six-12 month internship requiring a commitment of a minimum of 12 hours per week.

The Market Research Intern will have substantial freedom to structure research and marketing initiatives per client requirements, including lead generation, industry outlooks and competitor profiling. In turn, the successful candidate will learn how to present information to decision makers throughout the entire consulting process--from selling the service, delivering completed data and following up post assignment.

Position requirements include:

  • Undergraduate degree in intelligence studies, market research or marketing; enrollment in relevant graduate program preferred
  • Confidence to develop and defend research methodology and deliverables
  • Ability to quickly synthesize large volumes of data into an actionable presentation
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to relate to people from all levels of an organization
  • Outstanding organizational and time management skills

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume and availability to: MikeSmiley@DecisionAssociates.net.

“Decision Associates did a great job for us on our marketing and sales project. They were able to research a comprehensive list of prospects and assist us in moving those names to our customer list. They also recommended and aided us in receiving a grant to cover some of the costs. There was also room in the budget to include a creative agency to help with our own marketing. Along the way, we accomplished a customer survey with Sue Moore and received testimonials that we are not able to use in our marketing efforts at H&H Machined Products. I would absolutely recommend Decision Associates for marketing research and sales.”
