Research Rockstar delivers training and staffing services to busy professionals seeking Market Research excellence. Our 25+ training classes are offered in both online and on-site formats, and include options to earn Insights Association Certificates (note: the MRA became the Insights Association on January 1, 2017). Our Rent-a-Researcher staffing service places qualified market research experts, covering temporary needs due to project fluctuations, maternity leaves or other short-term needs.
Market Research is an investment, and a large one for many companies. But like any investment, it can be risky. To mitigate that risk, Research Rockstar provides your organization with access to research expertise either through training or temporary staff.
Our mission: to help buyers and users of market research complete research projects, apply the results to real-world decisions, and feel, indeed, like a Research Rockstar.
