Professional experience

John G. Schroeder

1985 – Present
CorpWrite, Ltd.

Leaving a staff PR position at a Fortune 500 company to become a freelance business writer appeared to be a risky move at the time, but it paid many professional dividends – including the chance to expand my writing repertoire to include: executive speeches; web content; trade show presentations and white papers; sales meeting and financial analyst talks; magazine articles; video scripts; marketing brochures; and annual reports.

Another dividend – the opportunity to write for companies and organizations working in a broad range of markets and professions:

> Healthcare — Hospital/Acute Care > Food Ingredients/Specialty Chemicals
> Public Education> Travel Marketing & Distribution
> Car Rentals> Banking/Financial Services
> Consumer Packaged Goods> Brewing
> Advanced Materials> Semiconductor Manufacturing
> Enterprise Management Software> Chemical Manufacturing
> Petroleum Refining> Medical Imaging Products
> Pharmaceutical Distribution > Hospital Distribution
> Industrial Controls> Petroleum Refining
> Catholic Religious Orders> Publishing & Printing
> Home Maintenance Services> Automotive/Automotive Aftermarket
> Hardware & Construction Materials> Telecommunications
