Wonder (askwonder.com) is a personal research assistant. We help companies like Bloomberg and IDEO answer questions ranging from, “Who are 5 major competitors in the non-chocolate industry and how do they differentiate?” to “Tell me everything I need to know about the Venezuela crisis”.
We’re looking for students (or recent grads) with exceptional online research skills to join our community of independent paid researchers. Wonder clients post questions about various topics in business, marketing, technology and more, and your job is to efficiently track down the highest quality resources across the Web and explain the results in a personable, human way.
As a student, flexibility is important. You can work between classes and make money to fund your tuition, or your Spring Break. Work whenever you want, as often as you want, and from wherever you want, all while networking with peers, building work experience and creating an impressive resume for post-graduation. Here are some example questions our clients ask:
What are the economics of Valentine's Day?
Why would AOL or Verizon be interested in a strategic investment in the start-up Rollout.io?
What are 5 new trends in online food ordering?
What's the market landscape for teacher training in Egypt?
As a Wonder Sourcer you’ll receive up to $10 per brief during your trial, and $16 as a ‘graduated’ Sourcer (you receive three 5-star reviews in a row). We provide you with a client’s question, and your job is to research the answer(s) and provide notes for for the Writer to create a brief. As your sourcing skills improve, you’ll be able to complete more briefs, earning around $16-$32 per hour. Once you’ve graduated from your trial, you’ll also be able to apply for more jobs on Wonder and earn even more money.
To apply, please continue to our online application available here: https://askwonder.com/researcher. We'll give you a trial research assignment to complete before determining whether to extend an invitation for you to join the Wonder Research Network.
