Latitude, a forward-thinking research firm located outside of Boston, is searching for a bright and motivated college student majoring in liberal arts/social sciences, with evidence of strong quant/formal reasoning aptitude, to help the our analyst team with research related day-to-day tasks. The right candidate will be an articulate and intelligent individual with strong communications and internet research skills.


For this position, years of experience are less important than natural ability, a willingness to learn the job, and a positive, can-do attitude. This is ideal for a candidate who is hoping to build his or her resume in a vibrant, cutting-edge company with an impressive – and growing – client list in communications and technology (Viacom, NBC Universal, AETN, ESPN, Scripps, About.com, BBC, etc.)


Our Research Intern’s core areas of responsibility will be:



  • Helping with study planning, data cleaning, data management, and reporting

  • Interactions with vendors and other external partners who play a role in our custom research studies

  • Other project-related tasks as assigned


The ideal candidate would have:



  • Strong attention to detail

  • High level of competency in Excel and PowerPoint

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • An interest in media research


Latitude is looking for a candidate to work 15 to 20 hours per week during fall semester. Pay is $12/hour.
