From a career-path perspective, working her way up in the social studies group for McGraw-Hill’s K-12 business made perfect sense. After all, Jaya was a political science major in college. And after 10 years and a number of promotions, she was quite content. And that’s when some colleagues suggested she’d be an ideal candidate for a management position in digital product development.
She needed to think it over. If she applied for the position that was available, she’d be overseeing digital products across subject areas – math, science, world languages, teacher professional development, and more. Would she be taking on totally different responsibilities? Definitely. Would she be leaving her comfort zone? Probably. Not an easy move, but she decided to apply for the position and got it. And she never looked back.
“With the new position, I became a much better project manager and consensus-builder. I also became better at developing processes and understanding their importance,” says Jaya, who would go on to research and develop products focused on a range of subjects, from math intervention and high school social studies to college and career readiness.
Today, she’s vice president of the product portfolio that produces the company’s intervention, early childhood, adult education, custom and professional development solutions. Her responsibilities include assessing market performance of programs, conceptualizing improvements to programs, and creating solutions that meet market needs.
“I really enjoy the challenges that come from working in education. And when someone asks me what I do and where I work, I’m very proud to say I’m with McGraw-Hill and I help develop programs that really drive student achievement.”
Since she joined McGraw-Hill Education in 2000 as a freelance software editor, there's been one constant for Shree – the pursuit and attainment of results. "Every day I have the opportunity to develop digital solutions that help the company showcase the very best tools for teaching and learning."
Shree takes immense pride in her perseverance – and leading a team in the completion of major projects. In 2010, that perseverance and teamwork were key factors in a huge project: consolidating five ecommerce websites into one site for the company’s PreK-12 business. Shree and her team received a major company award for the project.
In her current role as director of Digital Operations, Shree manages the PreK-12 ecommerce website, develops product-specific microsites, analyzes ecommerce data, and works to generate sales leads. "The company constantly offers me new opportunities in web development and ecommerce. Those opportunities have contributed greatly to my professional growth. Also, my managers have always been there for me, providing career guidance when I needed it, counseling me on staff management, hiring, and more."
Shree's career path has aligned well with her interests in web technology, digital marketing, and a master's degree in computer education. "What keeps me here? The challenging work and the people with whom I work. We share simple values – trust, respect, integrity - everyone here truly wants to make a difference in education."
If you knew Charlotte McLaren and looked up "passionate" in the dictionary, you might not be surprised to see a photo of her next to the word. She's that passionate – about education, her job at McGraw-Hill Education – and so much more. "I believe in the virtue of giving, especially giving a good education to students and the learning tools to help them succeed. When I think about the work we’re doing my level of enthusiasm goes through the roof."
Her love for education was always there, but it grew while she was an instructor at a vocational college in North East England. . She saw first-hand how making education personal could really make a difference in boosting student achievement. Committed to education and interested in returning to her native Australia, Charlotte, "on a whim" applied for a job as a sales representative with McGraw-Hill Education in 2005. Following nearly three years in sales and five in marketing, she became manager of strategic marketing for the higher education group. In this role, she works to ensure customer engagement with digital products, oversees product training, and leads major marketing campaigns.
Charlotte had no clear career plan when she started with the company, but landing a job in marketing changed all that and resulted in her considerable ambition to keep moving up and make an impact with the company's digital learning solutions on a global scale. "The people I work with are fabulous, and while our work is extremely challenging, we have an awful lot of fun. With the rapid changes taking place in educational technology, this is very exciting place to be right now."
Hemant began his career as an attorney. He also worked for a legal publisher where he copyedited law books, and that’s when his interest in publishing began to grow. Although he was unclear about the different publishing careers available at a global company like McGraw-Hill Education, he applied for a job in 2007. He expected – and yet undaunted - by a steep learning curve.
"When I was hired, I had only basic editorial skills, but more important than that, I had the positive attitude and willingness to learn the business and grow professionally." Those traits have served him well. Based in Noida, India, Hemant today is sponsoring manager for Business & Economics and Humanities segments in the higher education division. He manages product development, researches new products, and manages editorial and product development teams.
Hemant has moved up steadily in the company while gaining a range of skills and experiences that have been invaluable to his career advancement. He attributes much of his professional development to managers who have given him the opportunity to work on special projects. One such project required a major collaborative effort to develop digital learning tools for online MBA courses. "I enjoy working on large projects that involve working with my colleagues in different countries. Getting different perspectives, sharing product knowledge - it expands my horizons."
"I stay with McGraw-Hill Education because I've got a clear career path, which I look forward to pursuing much further. And I am very content to work for a company that gives me the opportunity to learn continuously, be creative, and experiment with new ideas."
Amy, at age 21, had no idea what career she wanted when she joined McGraw-Hill in a temporary job as marketing assistant. It’s fair to say she never dreamed she’d end up managing a multi- million dollar higher education program, overseeing content and product development, recruiting authors, and developing staff. That's what Amy does today as brand manager for the higher education division's microbiology and nutrition products.
McGraw-Hill's ability to develop digital learning tools constantly amazes Amy. "The shift from print to digital affects everything we do, from product development and talent acquisition to the selection of authors and how we update material. With digital, you can constantly update a product - that’s very exciting and challenging."
Shortly after her stint as a temp, Amy was hired full-time and worked for several years in marketing and sales. "I didn't have a college degree when I started here, but I liked the company and the education industry. I believe in the power of education to transform lives and I feel I'm playing an important role in that." Taking advantage of the company's tuition reimbursement program, Amy obtained her undergraduate degree.
"I've had great mentors and people who were willing to give me greater responsibilities and guidance whenever I needed it." What's her next job? "Whatever it is, I’m looking forward to it - maybe moving into a director’s position in editorial, product development or marketing. I've thoroughly enjoyed my career here. The experience I've gathered has been invaluable. I can’t think of a better place to be with the exciting changes taking place at our company and in education."
Jared started at McGraw-Hill Education as a marketing coordinator in the higher education division. After a year and a half, he admits that he had lost interest in the job. But then things began changing at the company. It started moving much more into digital product development. With the transformation from print to digital, Jared saw opportunity.
"The people, the innovation taking place, and the company's aggressive move into digital kept me here. I probably would have left otherwise." Instead, he became digital product manager, a position in which he worked with technologists, editors, sales, faculty and students on a range of product implementation, development and improvement issues.
From digital product manager, Jared took on even greater responsibility as program manager for digital partnerships. In this position, he was responsible for developing MHE's partnership strategy with the Blackboard learning company. Jared was there to launch the partnership that combined McGraw-Hill Education digital tools and content with Blackboard's learning management system. He was responsible for managing a field test of the product involving 10,000 students.
Today, Jared is director of adaptive learning systems, where he's responsible for managing the company’s suite of adaptive learning tools, helping to develop new products and getting the word out to the sales force and customers about the benefits of this cutting-edge technology.
What's his next career move? He’s not really sure, but that's primarily because with the company's digital transformation, there are new career opportunities presenting themselves constantly. "I'm very excited about what's next, even if the position I want hasn't been created yet."
