George Washington: Caitlin
In brief, what is your role at Hanover?
At Hanover, I am a Senior Research Associate, focusing on companies that work in the business-to-business component of the supply chain. The majority of the secondary research projects on which I work analyze products and companies operating in heavy manufacturing. I’ve also worked on projects in the healthcare sector and have analyzed primary research.
Why did you decide to work at Hanover?
I found the company’s business model quite interesting and the value that customized research has on clients. The research we do can have a significant impact on the business decisions, such as partnerships or entry into a new market/sub-sector.
In your opinion, what sets Hanover apart from other organizations?
Hanover is an organization that allows researchers to grow, hone their research skills, and learn new methodologies. This aptitude for learning and development is inherent in the company culture.
Why should graduates at your alma mater be interested in working at Hanover?
GW and the Elliott School instill strong research skills, allowing students to have project experience with both quantitative and qualitative research. These research skills prepare students for careers in a variety of fields, including the market research we do at Hanover. As a graduate of the Elliott School for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees, we are taught to view projects from multiple perspectives, a skill which I continuously use at Hanover on my projects in identifying sources and gathering information to answer clients’ questions.
What is your favorite part of your job/the company?
The people truly shape Hanover. Both researchers and managers are enthusiastic and positive and come from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds.
Hanover will be at George Washington on February 17th, see you there!
