Career Advise

01
To further develop your career, you may wish to consider specializing in doing research in a specific subject area or areas. You may wish to begin with a subject with which you already have a great deal of familiarity. For example, you may wish to offer your services in researching topics that you studied in school or that you have dealt with on a regular basis in your employment or as part of a hobby or long-term interest. The stronger your vocabulary in a subject area, the better your research will be.
02
While there is no specific licensure required to do this type of work, many people take classes in finding reference sources, database research, data mining, web analytics and research marketing intelligence, etc. These may be of use in developing professional competencies and marketing themselves to potential employers and clients. You may also find that taking courses provided by vendors of proprietary databases and research tools to be very helpful.
03
One of the most significant challenges of performing this kind of research is that there are numerous sources of information available online, and it can be difficult to target accurate information through the use of common Internet research tools. If you become a CIRS, you will be expected to evaluate these tools and learn how to use them to efficiently seek out the information that your clients or employer needs.

Several colleges and universities offer degrees and certificate programs in library science or competitive intelligence that may provide you with training in using Internet-based resources. Holding an educational credential in such a program may also make it easier for you to become an Internet researcher, given that employers or prospective clients may perceive you to have greater expertise than self-taught researchers.
