Shore, you can do so in a variety of ways that will help you to
maintain an independent career while being part of a vibrant
virtual team of industry analysts. Unlike other
research and advisory firms, Shore actively encourages the
participation of independent analysts as valued members of our
core team. These team members may
be chosen to provide research and advisory services and support
under the Shore brand, as either an independent consultant or
as an employee, or they may elect to participate in Shore's
virtual team opportunities on a partial basis while they pursue
other independent opportunities in parallel with their
Shore affiliation. Shore recognizes that in today's job
markets, such flexibility can allow people to provide valuable
input to our efforts in ways that help them to keep on the
cutting edge of industry developments while marketing their
skills in the most efficient manner possible. In turn,
Shore and its clients reap the benefits of a community of
talent that is being refreshed constantly by "real world"
Shore team members contribute to our
operations in any number of functional areas. Since each
relationship with Shore will be unique, there are few "typical"
examples of what a given workload may resemble: each person
contributes what they can, as they can. Key functions that are supported at Shore
by its team of analysts include:
market commentary on
developments in the content and related technology
industries, as well as in the institutions that they serve.

Contribution to and moderation of online
Shore looks actively to establish
relationships with talented and experienced people who have a
background in research and advisory services in content and
related technology markets, as well as with people who have
related industry experience in institutions that purchase,
implement, sell, or create content and related technology
services. Candidates should be able to "sell themselves"
and their services to major institutional markets and handle
the high degree of independence, ethics and self-discipline
required to work in a virtual team environment. Being
able to express oneself effectively and clearly in print, in
person, in media outlets and in online environments are
important skills that must be in place or readily developed.
Familiarity with business development, strategic sales
techniques and/or independent consulting practices is strongly
advised. Please note - if you are currently an
independent consultant, you need not give up your practice to
join our team in most instances.
