Sydney Beaudreault graduated from Michigan State University in December 2014, equipped with a professional writing degree, an ethic for hard work, enthusiasm, and talent for design and writing.
During college, Beaudreault worked several jobs and internships, all while keeping up with her coursework. She was a Campus Rep for L’Oreal, a Student Translator for Macy’s, a Publication Relations Assistant at Pure Promotions, and a Cooperative Assistant for Consumers Energy.
Now, Beaudreault finds herself at Vertafore as a Marketing Specialist–Technical Writer. When I asked her how PW helped her with her job, she said:
“It has helped me in every sense of my job. I was hired on as a technical writer, but I have also been able to assist the marketing team in various aspects of advertisement design in Illustrator and InDesign. On a day-to-day I write copy, copyedit anything before it goes to print, write press releases, will eventually be assisting in event planning, design advertisements, and writing RFP’s.”
I was fortunate enough to have several classes with Beaudreault and also worked on several projects with her, and I can safely say she is one of the hardest working people I know. Her determination to get things (a lot of things) done and done well has followed her into the beginnings of her professional career, as her job has her wearing many hats. She said this was the favorite part of her job:
“I get to be a part of several projects because I have such a broad knowledge base. PW allowed me to be well versed in all aspects of marketing and PR, so it’s great to do a different thing each day.”
Definitely keep an eye out for Beaudreault in the future; I have an inkling this isn’t going to be the last we see of her.
