Another Blaze Your Trail volunteer employed! Nabeel Jaffery has a degree in Computer Engineering and an MBA.
Nabeel grew up in Pakistan, playing in the streets in his neighbourhood. But when he married and started his family things were different. “I wanted the best for my family and decided to move abroad."
So he and his wife decided to move to Australia. Despite his education, experience and qualifications his starting salary 5 years ago was just above the minimum wage.
After 9 months as an Education and Career Advisor, he moved into a role as Team Leader of Student Connect at Melbourne Polytechnic.
During his time there Nabeel managed the transition to Salesforce including initial project requirements, process mappings, user acceptance testing, employee training and change management.
In early 2020 they took 3,000 enrolments online in response to COVID-19 in just the first quarter.
When Nabeel joined Blaze Your Trail in May last year, he already had Salesforce Administrator and Salesforce App Builder certifications, but needed some more experience.
Nabeel told me that he would love a role as a consultant. He had been trying to get into a firm but was finding it difficult to land the role he wanted. So I introduced him Mandi Gregory, Manager of People Operations and Growth at MTX Group, and the rest is history.
This month Nabeel joined the MTX Australia team as a Business Analyst.
Nabeel loves learning, singing and soccer. He is a big Chelsea fan, and loves cricket also. He enjoys travelling and exploring Victoria with his wife and three kids.
Nabeel said: "Joining MTX as a Business Analyst is a significant milestone in my career. I hope this is the beginning of a new journey, which I have awaited for so patiently all this while. I want to look back at this time and say to myself that is when it all started”
