Marketing Research Analysts
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for marketing research analysts will grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2022. Increasing competition among producers of consumer goods and services and industrial products, combined with a growing awareness of the value of marketing research data, will contribute to opportunities in the field. The increasing globalization of business will also create openings for analysts to study foreign markets and competition. Opportunities will be best for those with graduate degrees who seek employment in marketing research firms, consulting firms, companies that design computer systems and software, financial services organizations, health care institutions, advertising firms, manufacturing firms that produce consumer goods, and insurance companies.
