How do I get selected for research projects? 

To participate in paid research opportunities, you need to join the Essman Research database panel.


Essman Research will match your demographic information to the research studies we currently have available. We will call or e-mail to ask if you are interested and available for the research project. You will be asked a series of questions to determine if you qualify for the study. If you qualify, you will be invited to participate. Your participation in the research study is completely voluntary. At Essman Research, we value your participation in our market research studies and want you to find the experience valuable, as well.
