Adapted Video Transcript

Before becoming a Digital Marketer, I worked in a customer service role for Kiwi Education. At the time, I wanted to find something new. For instance, I wanted to find something more interesting and creative. In addition, I was hoping to gain a recognised qualification. With the Digital Marketing Diploma from NZIE I can find a job, not only in New Zealand, but also overseas. And in other English-speaking countries. 

Secondly, gaining a Digital Marketing Diploma, is a great start to my career. Whereas before I didn’t have any idea about digital marketing and now, I’m a qualified professional. As a result, I think I will have a great future in my career. 

The course was full of practical and interactive tasks and activities. All the assessments were absolutely applied. Moreover, they’re very useful for the Digital Marketing profession and jobs.

In short, I would definitely recommend NZIE’s Digital Marketing course as I am very satisfied. Meanwhile, I still work at the education agency except now I have a new role as a Digital Marketer. 

This is Elena’s second Success Story with NZIE 

In her Elena’s first interview she described her Digital Marketing role as below: 

Elena is responsible for Kiwi Education’s social media platforms and content marketing aspects.  

“Everything I do in this job role, I learned through NZIE’s Digital Marketing Diploma.” 

For instance, I can design cool social media posts and create engaging content, e.g. blogs and email newsletters.  

Elena’s Future Goals and Plans (from interview #1) 

Currently, I’m not looking to go anywhere or change jobs. I enjoy what I do, and will most likely stay with Kiwi Education for a while. It’s exciting here, and right now at my job, we are launching two new products! So, I’ll be in charge of the marketing material and campaigns for these two products. How exciting!
