Keep reading to learn about the experience of Hayley Howard ’17, Manager of Data Analytics:
“When I began my job search senior year, I knew I wanted to work at a company that would offer what I loved most about Middlebury: a close-knit community, the ability to learn something new every day, and exposure to a diverse array of projects that would challenge me in different ways. I have found all of this in Cadent. Every project offers the opportunity to learn about a new industry, work with different people, and fine tune skills such as data analysis, qualitative research, and public speaking. Working at a small company has meant that I was very quickly given a lot of responsibility, such as leading components of my projects and presenting to clients at major companies. I have also been able to leverage what I learned at Midd. As an economics major, it has been particularly rewarding to apply my knowledge of economic concepts when developing a pricing strategy, or build on my experience with econometrics when analyzing a dataset. Cadent offers the opportunity for a huge degree of professional development, making it a great place to work.”
