You Oughta Know: What Skills Make a Great Media Researcher?

Young Pros

There are skills you have, skills you wish you had, and skills you didn’t know you needed. With media research, computer science, and data science converging, the definition of a talented media professional is changing. Join us and our expert panel at UM as we seek to answer:

  1. What are the top skills media researchers should have now? Which will they need most in the future?
  2. Where and how can they build new skills? Online? In the classroom?
  3. How can you stand out to recruiters and get hired? Or promoted?

…and much more.

Panelists include:
Cristina Ackas – Partner, Research, UM
Max Brawer – Manager, Product Leadership, Nielsen
Kevin Moeller – EVP, Head of Research, UM
Alison Munsch, M.A., Ph.D. – Principal, Insights For Actions Research, Adjunct Professor of Marketing/Career Advisor
