We’re big believers in the power of building relationships and strong connections with real humans. To help you get to know us better, we’re putting the spotlight on each of our team members. Our Meet the Team series continues this week with Jackson Batchelder.

What is your role at CourseKey?

I am an Enterprise Account Executive for career schools.

What does your day to day look like?

It involves planning the conferences we’re going to attend, daily reach out to prospective schools, a little bit of ping pong. I try to eat a healthy lunch – most of the time I fail. A lot of my afternoons consist of doing research on the market and schools, and I travel to all of the conferences we attend.

Describe your job in 5 words or fewer.

Being patiently persistent and resilient.

What is your favorite challenge of your role?

Going out of my comfort zone to meet people in leadership positions.

What do you love most about CourseKey?

I love the office banter.

What is your favorite memory from when you were a student?

Probably when I finished my Master’s degree while working full-time. I have a favorite moment as a teacher, too. I once got to substitute teach alongside my mom.

If you could get on a plane to anywhere right now, where would you go?

I’ve always wanted to go to Fiji. It’s been a childhood infatuation that I can’t really explain. I think it’s the remoteness and distance involved in getting there.
