    Wherever you are in your dissertation or thesis journey, I can help you finish your qualitative research project as stress-free as possible. If you need help understanding qualitative data analysis and coding or are overwhelmed by the thought of just even starting data analysis, please send me a message—Maybe you’ve found your topic, but aren’t sure how to find all the academic sources you need for your lit review. Or you may be asking how to keep all your references organized. (Yes— there are stress-free ways to organize and cite hundreds of articles and books). Are you stuck and not sure if a case study or phenomenological approach is best? You've gathered your data and now what? Do you need help with NVivo or Quirkos for your data analysis? My favorite method is Thematic Analysis, but I'm well-versed in other forms of QDA. For my clients that I help through data analysis, I can help with document formatting (I'm a whiz at document formatting and am an APA 7 perfectionist.) If you need a specialized academic coach, you’ll find I have command of graduate research, thesis, and dissertation processes, which will help guide you through your educational journey. My doctoral education and journal manuscript authorship helped hone my skills in the academic writing arena. Please see my feedback for outstanding notes on my workflow and communication efforts. Note that ethics and integrity are fundamental to my practice. Know that I will NOT ghostwrite ANY part of papers or projects. Let’s talk about what you need and how I can help with your academic writing or academic journey. Patricia Daskalos, Ed.D

    Qualitative Researcher of 4+ years I have a go-getter mentality and put dedication into everything that I do. I found a passion for researching while I was completing my M.A. degree abroad. There is something rewarding and exciting when you are doing exploratory research. As cheesy as it sounds, I enjoy every aspect of the research process whether it is doing the literature review, building rapport with participants, or analyzing the data. Some research projects I have conducted in the past are on topics about perceptions abroad, culinary tourism, and culture and identity. My other research interests are migration, inequality, sustainability, and consumer behavior. However, I am always open to working in new industries and always looking to expand my market research skills. On top of my research skills - I can also - Recruit and Schedule - Transcribe Interviews - Moderate Interviews - Edit/Proofread - Quantitative Data - Survey design/ Survey program If you want someone who has the drive and motivation that will bring their A-game to the project, then I am your gal The goal is to bring quality work where both parties are more than satisfied I can help you with your project right away (less than 24 hours) and can work in any time zone (preferably PST) I look forward to working with you!

How to Hire Top Qualitative Researchers

How to hire qualitative researchers

Looking to gain in-depth insights into human perspectives surrounding a research question? A qualitative research consultant can help. 

So how do you hire qualitative researchers? Here are some tips for finding top qualitative researchers on Upwork.

How to shortlist qualitative research professionals

As you’re browsing available qualitative research consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles using criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a qualitative researcher who understands your industry so they can help you figure out how best to reach your target market. 
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., transcribing foreign-language interviews into English).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular qualitative researcher.

How to write an effective qualitative research job post

With a clear picture of your ideal qualitative researcher in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project. 

An effective qualitative research job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From conducting interviews to creating focus groups, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries or collaborative tools, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

QUALITATIVE RESEARCHERS FAQ

What is qualitative research?

Qualitative research is the process of collecting non-numerical data such as insights, opinions, and perspectives. It is more concerned with the “why” behind social phenomena than with the “what” addressed by numbers and statistics gained through quantitative research methods. 

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in qualitative research professionals:

  • Qualitative research
  • Academic writing
  • Qualitative research methods (e.g., interviews, focus groups, participant observation)
  • Subject-matter expertise (e.g., healthcare, UX design, psychology)

Why hire qualitative researchers?

The trick to finding top qualitative researchers is to identify your needs. Is your goal to create a focus group to gain qualitative feedback on a mobile app idea? Or do you need help documenting qualitative observations for an academic paper? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life. 

How much does it cost to hire a qualitative research professional?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced qualitative researcher may command higher fees but also work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver a higher-quality product.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their qualitative research more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
