FYI. Specifically interested in someone who has taken a course in survey sampling (such as STAT 574).
Hi Professor Davis,
My name is Corrie Hunt and I’m a Vice President at Hart Research. I’m writing to see if you happen to know any bright graduates who took your Survey Sampling course (at GMU) who are looking for to work in an applied research setting. We’re looking to hire someone to work in our Sampling Department. As you can imagine, it’s a very specific skillset and a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack but I saw from your sampling syllabus that you’re teaching a lot of the skills we need. We’re looking for someone with an understanding of different sampling approaches and ideally some familiarity working with the voter file. If you happen to have had any impressive students in the past several years that are looking to work in survey research, feel free to direct them to me.
You can direct any grads to our website if they want to learn more about our firm (www.hartresearch.com) and here if they want to learn more about the specific position: http://hartresearch.com/contact/employment-opportunities/director-of-sampling/
The job title of the listed position is “Director of Sampling” but we’re also looking for people to fill a more mid-level position as well if you have a former student with a lot of the knowledge but not necessarily professional experience yet.
