Udacity Student Success Stories from around the world

Excerpts from the Udacity blog

Laura wanted to stay in the non-profit world and this new opportunity would allow for career growth. She interviewed and was able to land the role of director of communications. The Nanodegree program prepared her to speak more knowledgeably about the work she had accomplished and what she could provide in a new role.

“In this new role, I have the opportunity to build our marketing plan from the ground up. Not only am I strategically planning, I’m digging into our email performance, click-through rates, and the website optimization to find out where we can grow—I get to impact everything. Before Udacity, I wouldn’t have had the mindset to come into a job like this.”

Launching A Company and Achieving a Dream

Sandra successfully graduated from the program, and she and her husband subsequently launched their new company, Pecan Media Services. Their slogan? Taking mystery out of marketing!

“Our clients have this notion that they need to be online, but they aren’t sure of how to go about it, and are generally timid. With my new skills, I am able to create a custom, clear and actionable plan that shows them how their business will grow with the appropriate spend. It really takes a lot of fear out of the process!”
-Sandra Girouard
