Decision Associates, the region's leading business consulting group, seeks candidates for an internship focused on market research and data analysis. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn alongside accomplished executive consultants on high level issues across a wide range of industries. This is a paid, six-12 month internship requiring a commitment of a minimum of 12 hours per week.

  • Confidence to develop and defend research methodology and deliverables
  • Ability to quickly synthesize large volumes of data into an actionable presentation
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to relate to people from all levels of an organization

“When we needed to make a new hire, we contacted Decision Associates. We were very pleased with the process that they used and the attention they gave to our company. Though we didn’t find the ideal candidate for the job, they moved us in a direction that actually made more sense than hiring. They guided us on the right path for the changes and made recommendations that were perfect for our organization. They looked at what the best decision for our company was, even though it wasn’t the first path that we took. We valued the insight, suggestions and the good working relationship that we built. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Decision Associates for recruiting and/or operational improvements.”
