Field Interviewers

We’re seeking talented Field Interviewers for survey research projects nationwide to conduct opinion surveys with persons who are older or have a disability. The in-person interviews ask participants about their quality of life and about their experience with the home and community based services and supports (HCBS) they are receiving. Core questions cover topics such as; getting needed services, communication with providers, case managers, choice of services, medical transportation, and personal safety, as well as community inclusion and empowerment. Becoming a Field Interviewer is a remarkable way to make a difference and give this population a voice in the future of state services.
