Research analysts scour public market information and glean valuable insights for the use of companies in buying, investing, and selling products or services. Their specialty is condensing large amounts of information into workable financial advice for their clients. As a research analyst, you may specialize in finance, equity, or investment markets, among other sectors. Your services may be provided on a freelance basis, you may work for an agency or you may be employed in-house within an organization. Those with experience in marketing, investment, or company finance may pursue careers in research analysis. Research analysts must, at a minimum, hold extensive background knowledge in the market they represent. Most often, a bachelor's or Master's degree in research analytics or a related field is required for employment. You must have strong organizational and communicative skills in order to process relevant information and convey it to clients or employers. Market research skills are also a requirement for this career.
