Paul Des Jardins graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Upon graduation, Paul stayed in Madison and accepted a position at Epic Systems as a software tester before transitioning to a role as an IT Sales Assistant at his family’s business, Share Corporation. At Epic he learned valuable interpersonal communication skills, as well as how to manage a small team while testing software updates, coordinating the design of new pieces of development, and ensuring the timely completion of deliverables. While assisting Share’s sales reps with software problems and training new reps on how to use new CRM systems, Paul also redesigned training files for district managers and implemented new processes for team communication and project reporting.
In his spare time, you can find Paul playing hockey or volleyball. He is an avid Brewers and Packers fan, loves to travel and read, and is learning how to play drums and bass guitar. Paul is very excited to return to UW-Madison to join the Strategic Human Resources Management specialization in the MBA program where he hopes to further develop his business acumen and leadership abilities.
