As part of National Domestic Violence (DV) Awareness Month in October, Milady, our beauty and wellness higher education brand, partnered with the Professional Beauty Association to promote a free, 1-hour DV awareness course. Thanks to beauty professionals’ close and trusted relationships with clients, once properly trained, they are uniquely positioned to recognize signs of domestic violence and be their clients’ first line of support during difficult and dangerous situations. 1,897 beauty professionals and future beauty professionals enrolled and 74% have already completed the course. The team also dressed up for Purple Thursday - a national day of action to raise awareness about domestic violence. Kudos to Milady for the meaningful work!

To celebrate National STEM Day, we asked Majd Yazbeck, Director of Software Engineering, what advice she would give to someone who is considering a career in STEM. She said, “If STEM is an area you enjoy, go for it. Be confident and comfortable being you; go for what you believe in. If you are a woman in STEM and feel out of place, don’t let the idea of you being the only woman in a meeting stop you or make you doubt yourself. Hopefully in years to come this will not even be a point to consider.” She explains that “I have been lucky enough in my career to have been in settings where I don’t feel I’m treated differently because I am a woman. Throughout my career, I’ve had both female and male mentors. At Cengage Group specifically, I have recently seen an increased emphasis on supporting women in tech (WiT) through our hiring process and our WIT Employee Resource Group, where women can learn from and lean on each other.” Majd says that she enjoys working in STEM because she likes to “contribute to creative and innovative projects and participate in anything that takes grit."

Pros

The best part of Cengage Group is the culture. Of course, "culture" sounds vague and cliche. But if you know, you know. The pay and benefits are good and certainly appreciated. But is just part of

Cons

I have none. It's a great place to work ( I work remote, but still--a great "place").

Advice to Management

Keep up the openness and empathy. You don't realize how valuable it is to hear your senior leadership talk to people weekly. I know it is a risk to act so human and vulnerable in a corporate setting,

    Media Designer Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cengage Group (Boston, MA) in Jul 2019

    Interview

    The actual interview at Cengage for me was very refreshing. It felt more like a conversation than a formal interview. I wish more interviews were more like the one I had at Cengage. It really helped calm the nerves, and felt like I was talking to an old friend. I went home immediately wanting the job, even though I had been offered similar positions at two other companies. A couple of weeks later I was offered the position at Cengage, and of course I took it.

    Q: Coming from a freelance background, how do you think you would do working on a team of media designers?
