Program overview

Practical, intensive, and invaluable – the Kantar internship program places our interns in the fast-paced world of market research, challenging and requiring them to use their various skills and knowledge to support our team of market researchers, who are each experts in the industries they specialize in. So, while our interns support us in the areas of desk research, data analysis, FGDs, fieldwork, translations, business trips, among many others, they also get to learn about the market research process in various industries as well as about market trends happening all around the world.

Furthermore, as a Kantar intern, our comprehensive program offers an experience where you can enjoy various group activities with other like-minded individuals such as overnight workshops, interns night out, weekly lunch gatherings, reunion parties, and occasionally, a trip outside Seoul. Thus, not only will you gain invaluable work experience with us, you will also find an excellent networking opportunity where you can develop lasting friendships with other young professionals.

For those who demonstrate exceptional professionalism, dedication, and capability throughout the course of the program, the opportunity for further employment is available, either through a contract extension, or if you pass through all stages of the recruitment process, a full time position as a research executive. And of course, throughout your internship program and beyond, Kantar will act as a valuable source of reference and recommendation for your future career and academic endeavors.
