Working as an international student comes with all kinds of challenges but equally many rewards. Becoming career-ready before graduating is a tough task for a student, universities offer career advice and support, but nothing comes close to practical hands-on work experience. This combined with the soft skills you can gain at university such as critical thinking and communication help set graduates apart in a very competitive environment. This is true for Moneeb, Conversion Executive here at OI Digital Institute.
Building on his experience as an international student and his work as an ambassador, Moneeb is uniquely placed to assist students on their own educational journeys. Through his work with Oxford International, Moneeb was also well placed when part-time employment opportunities arose in our OI Digital Institute division.
OI Digital Institute was looking for a representative that could assist the team to support prospective students in their online education journey. As an international student with experience as an ambassador, Moneeb possessed the right skills, experience and passion that suited the new position’s requirements, and through his network at OIEG has recently been working with OI Digital Institute as a Digital Ambassador.
“I started my career at OI Digital Institute as a Digital Ambassador, helping students through their application process and liaising with various internal departments. I assist students to get answers to their questions and ensure they have their complete documentation for applying for online courses. I’ve used my experience as an international student and my business management education to best understand our products and how they suit our customers, then I help prospective students on their education journey.” – Moneeb
Staying connected to our student base helps OI Digital Institute to best serve our customers and adding a personal touch to our online application process gives students the confidence when signing up for an online course. Since Moneeb has joined the role and requirements have evolved, offering increased employment opportunities.
“My responsibilities at OI Digital Institute continue to grow. Currently, I’m working as a conversion executive for our programmes and helping to convert leads into prospective students. I’m using my business education background to work in the marketing team and my experience as an ambassador to connect with our customer base. I’m enjoying working in a team that helps me be creative and strategic and develop my professional skillsets, but even more, I am super excited to be joining the team full time after I graduate.” – Moneeb
“Moneeb has an incredible work ethic and passion for growth. You can quickly see that he has maximised every learning opportunity during his undergraduate studies and uses this to offer valuable insights to his role here at OI Digital Institute” says Angelique Dugas, Head of Marketing at OI Digital Institute.
Dynamic and passionate students are the future dynamic and passionate employees. Across our business, we are excited to work with students throughout their education journey and to provide opportunities that prepare them for their careers.
