ABOUT THE ASSOCIATE / SENIOR ASSOCIATE OPPORTUNITY

All recent graduates – PhDs, MAs and BAs alike – join Clarion as Associates / Senior Associates, with differences in compensation, expectations and career trajectory based on highest degree achieved.  Because we care about performance and results more than titles, we strive to keep hierarchy to a minimum – thereby allowing every individual to rise to their highest potential. 

Clarion Associates gain exposure to a broad range of issues facing businesses in the rapidly-changing life sciences industry.  As an Associate / Senior Associate, you will develop and apply a solid set of skills that will help you contribute to our work in key areas and will serve you well throughout your career:

•   Analysis:  You’ll dig into data, prioritizing key issues, generating hypotheses and testing your theories.  You’ll bounce ideas around with your teammates, and you’ll keep going until you are confident with your results.
•   Communication:  You’ll clearly and persuasively articulate your analysis, effectively using slides and verbal communication to present your key findings.

Each project is unique, but a case team typically consists of 3-6 Clarion members including a Managing Director and/or Principal, an experienced Consultant and/or Manager, and one or more Associates.  Client interaction occurs at all levels and varies based on the project.  Given the size of the firm, its entrepreneurial culture and relatively horizontal organizational structure, Associates can expect to interact with Managing Directors frequently, benefitting from their seasoned judgment and experience.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS
•   BA, MA, or PhD degree, demonstrating significant academic achievement in any discipline
•   Demonstrated quantitative aptitude
•   Solid critical thinking ability
•   Strong communication skills (oral and written)
