Hanover Research Freelance Opportunity

Who They Are: Hanover Research is looking for highly qualified individuals to support ongoing market research projects in the Higher Education sector. Ideal candidates will be current graduate students in education or humanities fields. This is an opportunity to gain on-the-ground research experience for one of the leading market research firms in the country, and to help make a tangible impact on higher education operations.

What It Is: The Hanover Content Network (HCN) is a network of individuals who complete project work (typically 30-40 hours per project) on an ad hoc basis. Project timelines range from 1 to 4 weeks. Most work is focused on evaluating the market for different kinds of degree programs, and involves light data analysis and synthesis of secondary source material.


How It Works: Available contract work is posted to an online site, and participants bid for projects that match their expertise and availability. To become a member of the network, you will need to participate in a brief online training session, facilitated by Hanover’s Learning & Development Team, and complete a short written assessment.

To Apply: Contact Allyson Grennille, Managing Content Director at Hanover Research, at agrennille@hanoverresearch.com. Emails should include your full name, current degree program and institution, and contact details (email and phone).
