Become a Community Ambassador for our MOOCs

By Shanshan Thompson and Mark Eric Benson (with assistance from the Illinois Community Ambassador Team).

The Illinois Community Ambassador Recruiting Guidelines 

Are you a team player? Do you easily connect with people even if you don’t meet them face to face? Are you comfortable participating in an online meeting?  A Twitter Chat? A Facebook Live Chat? Most importantly, are you passionate about Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and business courses? 

If you say “YES” to all these questions, please feel free to consider joining us and be a part of our Illinois Community Ambassador Team.  Our Team members hail from places all over the world but meet virtually on a periodic basis to try to find ways to promote the positive attributes of the UIUC Gies courses available via Coursera. We are collaborative, open-minded, and demonstrate a thirst for learning, personal growth and encouraging others. 

What are some of the perks of the UIUC Community Ambassador Program? 

  • Be a part of an engaging, creative, collaborative and global community.
  • Represent one of the most renowned universities in the world.
  • Hone team management, communication and other leadership skills.
  • Deepen knowledge about brand management and other up-to-date marketing concepts and practice.
  • Savor opportunities to communicate your love for marketing innovation.

You also qualify if you are willing to devote three or four hours every week to these and other related activities

If you can also attend a monthly one hour web meeting in the morning (10 am – 11 am U.S. Central Time), we encourage you to apply.
