REPOST: Southeastern Research Institute is looking for a Market Research Intern for Spring 2010!

 

About SIR:

 

The Southeastern Institute of Research (SIR) was founded 46 years ago on one simple but powerful idea — marketing research has to be actionable! It must generate information and insight that leads to action and, ultimately, results. It has to stay off the shelf and on the desk as a useful tool. Simply put — we believe in research that works!

 

This perspective has guided the over 13,000 marketing research studies we have conducted since 1964, making us one of the oldest and most experienced marketing research firms in the country. Our experience comes from helping clients like AARP, AT&T, Goodyear, GE, National Kidney Foundation, Polaroid, Rubbermaid, Owens & Minor, PayPal, American Chemical Society, Liberty Mutual and Media General — plus many smaller, niche companies and entrepreneurs whose names are not widely known.

 

Today, we help corporations, organizations, and associations formulate unique brand positions, identify and seize opportunities, manage competitive threats, test new products and services, launch new initiatives, and track the overall effectiveness of marketing programs. Along the way, we have learned that the real key to actionable research isn’t in running surveys or crunching numbers; it’s in figuring out how people think, feel, and act. It is deconstructing and then reconstructing behavior, motivations, and desires.

 

Job description:

 

Build job skills while learning about the exciting career of marketing research. This research-oriented internship would be perfect for a psychology or sociology major who is starting to explore different career options.

 

The intern will assist full-time research staff in a number of different marketing research related activities, such as:

 

·         Conducting survey fieldwork

·         Coding open-ended response

·         Data analysis

·         Survey programming

·         Data entry

·         Helping to preparing reports

·         Proof-reading questionnaires and reports

 

REQUIRED skills: The ideal candidate must be detail oriented with a strong desire to learn about marketing research. A working knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel is required.


 

Preferred skills: Experience designing surveys, programming online surveys, and conducting analysis in SPSS is preferred. Coursework in marketing research or survey design is a plus.

 

Anticipated Dates: Spring Semester 2010, with the possibility of continuing to Summer/Fall

 

Number of openings: 1

 

Schedule: Flexible, 8-10 hours a week

 

Compensation: TBD

 

To apply: Send a resume and cover letter sent to Anna MacIntosh at anna@sirresearch.com

3 Reasons People Bomb Their Interviews from Gotta Mentor


 Reason #1: Not Enough Detail in Their Answers 

One of the key mistakes people make in their interviews is excluding critical details that are relevant for the job they are interviewing for. 

 Reason #2: They Do a Poor Job of Answering the “Why Me” Question 

Why should they hire YOU over all of the other people who want the same job?  Remember that the ideal ca
ndidate for the job is someone who has the key skills and can hit the ground running. 

 Reason #3: Bad energy 

Interviewees who have flat verbal delivery, talk too quickly, are nervous, or arrogant fail the “fit” test.  Since most of us lack enough self-awareness to realize that we may have these problems.
