In brief, what is your role at Hanover?
As a Content Director I essentially work as a research manager supporting Hanover’s higher education practice. I work with clients to design appropriate methodologies to answer their research questions, and I manage the analysts who do the research and write the reports.
Why did you decide to work at Hanover?
I came to Hanover because it offered an opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of different topics and methodologies in education research. This is not a company where people fall into a routine of doing the same type of project week after week. Hanover’s clients all have their own unique needs and requests, and the content teams have to think creatively about how to address those questions.
In your opinion, what sets Hanover apart from other organizations?
Hanover is a very dynamic company that takes corporate responsibility seriously. The fact that the company is growing at a remarkable rate means that there are lots of opportunities for advancement for skilled and talented people. At the same time, Hanover participates in a ton of community service events, giving everyone the chance to give back to the community.
Why should graduates at your alma mater be interested in working at Hanover?
Hanover is a great place to work because people are able to explore their interests. If you would like to learn how to do a certain type of project, managers try to give you that type of work. If you have an idea for how to improve our work, or if you would like to offer a training or set up a group, you can. Hanover is not tied to doing things a certain way just because that is how they have been done in the past.
What is your favorite part of your job/the company?
My favorite part of working at Hanover has been the people I work with. Everyone is really smart and thoughtful. I have also found everyone here to be very interested in seeing others succeed; it is incredibly easy to ask for help when you need it and your coworkers will line up to offer their assistance.
