how to find companies for a case study


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm a Phd Candidate and I'm having big, big troubles in finding companies for some case studies (or at least interviews) I need to do in order to complete my thesis. Does anyone have an idea about how to convince people from companies to get involved in the study? I think of sending some emails, but I have no clue about what I should put inside : a precise description of my work? a general idea only? how long the email should be?

Some help will be highly appreciated....

Thank you all,

Your best bet would be to ask your academic advisor/dissertation committee. They're most likely to have encountered the issue and have ideas on how to best proceed.

Thank you, Eigen, for your quick reply. Well, I'm having some difficulties getting proper advice, especially because my advisor is a young professor without connections in the business world. I'm on my own, and it's difficult. Writing to companies in order to convince them to let you study them is a hard task and I also don't know how to do it....Anyway, thank you for your response

Thank you, Rising_Star,

I'll try your advice on Linkedin. There might be a chance to get some interviews by contacting people there.

What I wanted to know (and fail to express, lol) is the practical side of writing emails to people in order to ask them an interview : what should I put in this email? a general description of my study, or a very precise one?

Thank you again to all of you,
