Westat is currently seeking motivated individuals with a commitment to excellence to work as Field Interviewers for an important study, the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies-Cycle 2 Main Study (PIAAC-Cycle 2 MS).
PIAAC is a cyclical, large-scale study of adult skills and life experiences focusing on education and employment. Survey participants are asked questions about their educational background, work history, the skills they use on the job and at home, their civic engagement, and sense of their health and well-being. In addition, participants complete an assessment that is designed to compare a broad range of adult skills, from simple reading to complex problem-solving skills.
The primary role of the PIAAC Field Interviewer will be to screen pre-selected households and conduct in-person interviews with selected respondents. Interviewers are responsible for contacting these households in person to gain cooperation, scheduling appointments, and conducting interviews using a Westat-provided tablet computer. Interviewers report regularly to a Field Supervisor, complete and submit administrative paperwork, and need to comply with data security and confidentiality requirements.
Working on this study can be a fascinating, rewarding experience. If you are a reliable self-starter, this position may be right for you.
