What we look for in a Field Interviewer.

We are looking for outgoing and engaging people who have a background conducting field interviews, collecting data, providing customer service, working in restaurants, retail stores, or any type of sales positions, and/or other public facing employment. If you are self-motivated, like to speak with all kinds of different people, and share our commitment to objective, high-quality research, then you can help us make meaningful contributions that impact our nation.  

You will be instrumental in helping NORC make sure our study participants’ voices are heard.

NORC is an objective, nonpartisan research organization that delivers insights and analysis decision-makers trust.  We are passionate about giving people a chance to share their opinions and experiences so that our clients and the public can be informed and make decisions based on the highest quality data we can provide.  NORC’s field interviewing team makes this possible.  

As a Field Interviewer, you will call and visit people at their place of residence, introduce them to NORC and the study you are assigned to, and then complete an interview with them.  Some of these people will have experiences and opinions similar to your own.  Others will have different perspectives.  By giving each person a chance to participate, being a careful listener, and applying the interviewing techniques you will learn in training, you will help make sure the data we collect from each person is accurate.  As you give people a chance to be heard, it will give you a sense of pride and achievement in knowing that the work you do for NORC contributes to our high standards for quality and objectivity for which we are known in the research industry.
