Careers in English: Robyn Schuricht Bryant

Robyn Schuricht Bryant

"Most people believe that if you get an English degree, you have to teach English—but, that’s simply not the case.  I graduated from the NIU English department with a graduate degree in Rhetoric and Professional Writing in 2006 and have been working for the same company—using my degree—ever since.  I am currently the Proposal and Marketing Coordinator for a marine environmental consulting firm based out of South Florida where I am responsible for coordinating and editing my company’s proposal efforts, maintaining the promotional materials (hard copy and electronic) and designing and assembling corporate promotional material. As part of my job responsibilities, I also edit two monthly magazines published by an affiliate company.  In addition, I am a freelance editor/technical writer and work with authors on full-length novels as well as independent online stores, helping write product descriptions and web content."
