My name is Jeffry Cape and I attended WIU Fall 2007-Spring 2012. In my time at Western, I completed a Masters of Arts in the college of Communication. I was very involved on campus with various clubs; Greek life, student employment, community service, philanthropy, and different networking events within the College of Communication Studies. All of these experiences exposed to networking for the future. I was able to use those skills while searching for a career, which launched me into the current role I have with Groupon.
I am currently a business development expert for Groupon's Arizona market. I work with businesses in all product and service industries. In my role, I plan the operational and financial strategic plan behind the Groupon. I have been in this role for 6 months, and I used my networking skills from WIU and social media to get a interview. From there, the magic happened.
If it wasn't for the staff and faculty at WIU I wouldn't have wanted to get involved in campus life. That motivation, education and experience has cultivated me a successful business person. If anyone is interested in interviewing for any position at Groupon, email me your resume (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will help you get a interview.
