Actual Intern Testimonial

Jaimie McMichael
Slippery Rock University

"At The Brandon Group (TBG), Inc. I was given the support I needed in order to grow as a Technical Writer. One of the greatest factors in developing my technical writing skills was the work I did alongside one of the Technical Writers. Together, we performed the necessary research in order to write a technical document, decided upon the appropriate organization of the chapters in the manual, wrote to make every word count, and proofread and revised until only the most thorough and accurate document was produced. Eventually, the skills I acquired from working with an experienced professional allowed me to write a document on my own. The relationships I established with the staff allowed me to work both on an independent and collaborative basis.

One of the most valuable lessons that I learned while at TBG is that Technical Writing is a collaborative effort. A good technical document can not be produced without the help and expertise of others. When you are writing a document relating to a field with which you do not have the expertise, it is essential that an effective and open relationship is established with clients. A Technical Writer must be able to know which questions to ask at the appropriate time. This can not be done without researching the subject, which will in turn gain the trust and respect of the client.

From the perspective of an Intern majoring in Technical Writing, the greatest benefit I received while working at TBG was the fact that I was working at a company where I could witness the entire technical writing process. I was there when relationships and correspondence with clients were established, research was being performed, when the manuals were written, proofread, and revised. The entire experience allowed me to see a job through from start to finish.

As a TBG Intern, I have learned that every experience impacts your next decision regarding your professional and personal direction. Never underestimate any experience, you simply never know how much you’ve learned until it is over and you find yourself wiser and stronger than before. My Internship is something that I will remember always."
