I am currently an undergraduate Business Economics student at UCLA who is also interning at the Walt Disney Company. A colleague of mine currently has an incredible work opportunity in Los Angeles that could be a great fit for someone within UCLA Economics department. I was wondering if you could share this with graduating seniors and graduate students.

The position is a Workforce Insights Analyst, and the role is a full-time project hire, slated to last for 7 months (no guarantee nor expectation of permanent placement).

 The Workforce Insights Analyst (Project Hire) will contribute to the process of developing talent strategies that align with the needs of a business. The analyst will perform data collection, analyze moderately complex workforce metrics, and develop analytics models to evaluate workforce data. Reporting to the Manager of Workforce Insights, the individual in this role will collaborate with business leaders and HR team members to develop insights to help make informed decisions and leverage our greatest asset — our people!

We would love to see a candidate with an advanced degree for this opportunity (but not required), as well as a candidate with experience in metrics and dashboard design, knowledge of data programs (COGNOS, SuccessFactors, Tableau, SAS, SPSS, STATA, R and/or a survey program) and experience with databases and programming languages (such as SQL).
