Are you a self-motivated, people person looking to make meaningful contributions through work that impacts the nation? NORC's field interviewer opportunity offers a flexible role where you will engage with all types of people in the area to collect data and information about people's experiences as Medicare beneficiaries.

Some weeks are busier than others, however, interviewers can expect to have work on MCBS for as long as the project stays in the field and they meet all efficiency, response rates, and quality standards.
