Jessica Schlauderaff

I met so many amazing people – students, faculty, and staff. It's just so hard for me to narrow down the best parts of my time at UW-Superior."

To say that Jessica Schlauderaff made the most of her time at UW-Superior would be a bit of an understatement. 

Coming to campus as an admittedly shy student, Jessica was able to experience so many things UW-Superior has to offer, gain a great education and land a great job after graduation.

She credits working as a residence hall assistant and manager as the first of many changes.

“I started as a shy Alternate Resident Assistant, but grew into a leader as Crownhart’s Hall Manager,” she said.

Jessica was also able to expand her appreciation of the world by taking part in a Study Away program at UW-Superior.

“I studied abroad in Scotland through the Wisconsin in Scotland program. I made some great friends and amazing memories, but I also really learned about myself and my goals,” she said. She also enjoyed attending cultural events put on by the World Student Association.

On campus, she gained much experience from an internship with the Office of University Marketing and Communications. There, she developed her research and problem-solving skills on two major projects, including a website redesign.

She credits Marketing classes with Dr. Ethan Christensen for helping during the internship and in her current role.

Jessica currently works as a Marketing Mix Analyst for the global marketing research company Nielsen within its Marketing Effectiveness Practice. She advises clients on their marketing needs by compiling and analyzing their data, running it through statistical models and recommending marketing strategies.

“The nice thing about this role is that I can work from home or from our office - or really anywhere that has WiFi,” she says.

Jessica loves the research side of her current role and the company is a great place to get started.

“I am still looking for ways to get back into programming and technology,” she says. “And travel is on my mind, whether that be trips abroad or moving somewhere new.”
