Meet Our English Alumni: Joseph Manuel

Right now Manuel works at Amazon doing technical writing for their internal project management software. This means he gets to write the ‘Help’ guides for the company and works to mainain the most current language and policy changes in their systems.

Manual has some advice for current English students based on the things he wishes he’d known: “Now is the perfect time to get an internship or to acquire work experience related to writing and editing. In my experience, they’re not as difficult to get when you’re still a student and it will make the transition to the workforce easier.

Also, if you can work towards a minor that’s related to something like graphic design, social media, or even journalism, having experience in the realm of digital technologies and software will be really valuable in the current job market.”
