I joined Unibuddy in November 2019, after a string of poor-fit careers…
Straight after graduating in 2018, I enrolled in a 1-year PGCE course to learn to be a Primary School Teacher, but after just 3 months, I decided teaching (in the traditional capacity) wasn’t for me, and I dropped out. I then worked as a Lettings Agent at a local property firm, but my heart wasn’t in it and this wasn’t the fulfilling career that I wanted.
Starting out at Unibuddy
I first heard about Unibuddy from a friend who worked in the Sales Team, whom I had previously worked alongside during my time at university, in the student engagement department. She had a lot of good things to say about Unibuddy and encouraged me to give it a shot…
I applied for both a University Partnerships Executive (Sales) and Customer Success Executive role at the London campus. I wasn’t quite sure where I’d fit best in the company, but I knew that I related to the company’s values and the company mission really resonated with me. I hoped that my cover letter had communicated just how passionate and enthusiastic I was about working at Unibuddy; as this felt like the fulfilling career I’d been waiting for.
After several rounds of interviews, where I was made to feel welcomed by every team member I came into contact with, I was offered the role of Customer Success Executive!
Obviously, I accepted and started working for Unibuddy in November 2019.
