Alum Connection with Michelle Wang: Using an English Degree to Forge a Successful Marketing Career

Thursday, September 29, 2022
3:00-4:00 PM
It’s been only 10 years since Michelle has walked campus as an U-M LSA undergraduate. Yet since then, she’s embarked on a lifetime’s worth of adventure: she’s lived abroad in France and mastered the French language, served a year in AmeriCorps, road-tripped up and down the U.S. as a tour manager, settled back into her hometown of Chicago, and has quickly climbed the corporate ladder to her current position as Senior Manager of Marketing Operations at PandaDoc. Michelle says “I've always found myself at the intersection of creativity and pragmatism, which translates to dreaming big and being able to accomplish it with a concrete action plan.” Now she is ready to share with LSA students how she identifies action plans for herself, leans into the mentors in her network, and uses her writing skills to effectively communicate in the corporate world.

About Michelle:

Michelle is involved in organizations such as Chicago Innovation’s Women’s Mentoring Co-Op, in addition to being a multimedia content creator and a chronic foodie. In her free time, she likes thru-hiking, traveling, and D&D.
