Market Research & Survey Support Intern
This internship can benefit an individual seeking a degree in variety of areas that may include market research, data analysis, marketing communications, and/or sociology. This individual will assist on a project for which CCE has received a Community Enhancement Grant from San Diego County. CCE will be conducting a series of workshops on Energy Efficiency Improvements in Rental Properties which are, on average, 15% less energy efficient than owner occupied homes and a third of renters pay over 6% of their income for their energy bills. SD County’s Decarbonization Framework identifies improvements in energy efficiency in rental properties especially water heaters as a high priority.
To conduct these workshops, CCE needs to understand the attitudes of various constituencies that include renters, landlords, property owners, contractors, and others. Do so will require both in-depth research as well as execution of surveys. Results will guide project execution and will be included in a final report that will be delivered to the County at the conclusion of the project.

Candidate should be able to:
Demonstrate practical knowledge of market research, analysis, surveying and report preparation.
