The Business Development Associate position really is a role where you can define your own levels of success by how much effort you put into your outreach and territory. Hard work and an appetite for knowledge are reciprocated by more success, larger commission payouts, and accelerated career development. That said, I’m also a huge fan of the collegiate work environment and culture of the Business Development Associate group at Hanover.<br /> <br /> In summary, the Business Development Associate role at Hanover is a great place for folks looking to start their careers in highly driven, fast paced work environment where learning is encouraged and opportunities for career development are abundant."</em><br /> <br /> <em>- Cameron Manley</em><br /> <br /> <br /> <strong><em>How to Apply</em><br /> If you are interested in the prospect of working for a dynamic, growing company, we encourage you to submit your cover letter, resume and writing sample to:</strong><br /> <a href=""></a><br /> Hanover Research is an Equal Opportunity Employer, providing equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local law.
