Volunteering Stories

Get Involved. Make a difference. Become a volunteer at our Association

"I chose to become Board Certified to support the movement of a unified certification among Researchers. Nationally, we can recognize one another as professionals."

"I choose to become Volunteer Board Member to hold myself accountable to the integrity of my career as a Research Specialist. I deserve to be set apart from the rest for all the hard work I have done and will continue to do."

"The association is the great source of finding the online information where-about. The Internet search has become skill-set that I needed to learn about my ongoing research work. I am a journalist and occasional research help for my employer. I have fallen in love with the group for what they bring to people like myself. They have a lot of information on their website for Internet information search. I visit them religiously every single day, especially to read the articles they compile on daily basis."

"For me, volunteering with the Association of Internet Research Specialist has been pivotal to my professional development. I know of no better avenue to gain the experience, exposure, and relationships that help improve one’s “self-product” as well as the “self-brand.” As my experience has grown over the years, I’ve also had the rewarding opportunity to “pay it forward” to emerging research stars working with them side by side."
