Specialist market research company Marketwise Strategies is proving that graduate research careers outside academia can be a wise career choice after taking on Durham University Masters student Laura da Costa.
Newcastle-based Marketwise Strategies is dedicated to recruiting the brightest young minds in the region, and does so through its extensive work with the ‘universities.
By engaging students through talks and attending career events, Marketwise Strategies is helping the next generation to consider challenging and rewarding careers in North East SMEs.
It was during such a talk by Dr John Gibson, research executive at Marketwise Strategies that Laura, from Belgium, heard about working in commercial market research. Laura, now employed as an audio transcriber for the company, is accessing invaluable work experience whilst also reinforcing her understanding of her current studies – an MA in Research Methods.
