Current Job Title:
Describe your current job:
As a content analyst, my job is to find answers to complex questions posed by businesses around the globe. To accomplish this goal, I first develop a multi-phased methodological approach that will allow our clients to understand the feasibility of finding answers to their questions. Once this is achieved, my objective is to analyze and report on what is often limited information to create recommendations that will help shape the business strategy of our clients.
What is the most rewarding and the most challenging part of your job?
One of the many things I learned at WMU was that the most challenging and yet most rewarding endeavor was trying to find answers to complex questions. At Hanover Research, I work with a lot of very smart people who find creative and innovative solutions to real world problems. The main challenge is to be able to find these answers to create actionable advice for our clients under the very demanding time constraints often found in the business world.
Which of your skills had the biggest impact on your success?
I think that my methodological and analytical skills have helped me the most in my transition from Western. These skills are attractive for employers in many different sectors that try to find solutions to complex challenges of their own.
What advice do you have for students looking for their career after college?
Even for those of you who know the career path you want to embark on, there is a host of other attractive opportunities that you still may not be familiar with. It is helpful to do some research that will help you identify the key skills you need to have to be a competitive candidate overall. Work on honing those skills and new ones that will help you stand out from the crowd.
