NEO Student Outreach Members Speak at University of Akron

Barb Philbrick, Jason Vensel, and Lisa Mileusnich visited the University of Akron on November 9. Students from Kelly Webb Bronstrup’s technical writing classes braved the cold and snow to meet with us. We discussed our career paths, how to work with SMEs, what we do at our jobs, and general tips for becoming a successful technical writer. The students asked insightful questions to lead our talk.

And we had Zippy cookies! (Zippy is the university’s mascot, a kangaroo.)
