Experience

Researcher on internal communication

Apr 2011 - Jul 2011 (3 months)

This is an example of several freelance jobs of this nature I have done over the years. When Siemens launched a worldwide research project in order to improve their internal media system, I helped by conducting dozens of phone interviews with Siemens employees from all over the world. Afterwards the essential information from these interviews was transcribed into a data analysis database in order to have an overview of results and possible refinements.

Data analyst / Transcriptionist

Sep 2008

eXplidata is an innovative German service for qualitative market research and one of my best and longest clients in the field of data analysis and transcription. With them I have worked on numerous projects on behalf of noted clients such as German car manufacturers and some of the leading market research institutes. I have also done translation work for them.

Customer Support & Translation

Jan 2005 - Dec 2008 (3 years)

FARO is a German manufacturer for laser measuring tools. While they extended their market range across Europe, I did regular translation and customer service research work for them over several years. This also meant phone interviews with their international clients (mostly UK/Ireland) to enquire on customer satisfaction and possible support extentions. I really enjoyed working for FARO, as I could make use of both my English as well as general communication skills.
