Do you love spending hours online hunting down facts or verifying information?
As a Researcher, you will need to possess the following skills:
- Attention to detail
- Critical thinking
- Data interpretation
If you would like to test the waters and determine if Researcher is a good fit for you, the micro-job sites list gigs for which you can bid and compete. After you have determined that you want to become a Researcher, you can either continue using the micro-job sites or you can set up your own research business.
At the very least, you will need to have an updated computer, a fast and reliable internet connection, and a website for you to offer and advertise your services as well as list your credentials and past client testimonials. Businesses in search of a Researcher want someone who has already proved themselves efficient, responsible, and knowledgeable about research methodologies appropriate to their industry.
All industries can benefit from a Researcher’s services.
You could fact check claims on a business website.
Conduct comparative market research on products and services.
Provide information and background data to authors and academics.
…the possibilities are endless!
