Are you a student interested in topics like data analytics, visualizations, marketing, and consumer behavior? Or someone who is considering a new career in the insights industry? Join the Insights Association, New England Chapter (IANE) for a unique virtual event, From Classroom to Conference Room: Visualize Your Marketing Research Career. This event will introduce participants to the insights field and connect them with an experienced mentor who can provide advice and guidance to those looking to jump into an Insights career.
The event will consist of two parts:
The event will kick off with an “Advice Hour” where a panel of four experts will share a glimpse into the insights profession, including, both: 1) what a day in the life of their career looks like; and 2) the path that got them into their career. This panel will include professionals in different roles, backgrounds, and experiences, providing a holistic perspective on what a career in the industry could look like.
Part two of the event will connect participants with professionals in the industry. Participants will meet in smaller break out groups, led by a mentor who will answer questions about the industry. Mentors will share their contact information with the students in their break-out group, letting them know they are available for follow-up. Mentors will check in quarterly with their student cohort and IANE will facilitate longer-term mentoring and connection opportunities using a LinkedIn group for mentors and students to connect.
From Classroom to Conference Room will:
- Provide students and those interested in the Insights field an opportunity to hear more about Insights careers, what these jobs entail, and how to successfully get started in the field.
- Give participants an opportunity to meet experienced Insights professionals from diverse companies, roles and backgrounds.
- Offer ongoing mentorship with an experienced professional to help guide participants as they get started in the field.
- Students will have the opportunity to become a member of IANE at no cost, providing additional educational and networking opportunities with industry professionals.
