Tech Comm Career Paths Presentations—FTC/STC Annual Meeting
By: Nick Ducharme
Florida Chapter, STC
Our chapter’s association with the University of Central Florida (UCF) has been one of our core strengths since long before I joined the chapter. For instance, our annual Melissa Pellegrin Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to UCF students with an interest in tech comm since the late 90s. We also partner with UCF’s Future Technical Communicators (FTC) club on our famous mentoring program each year, as well as an annual FTC/STC joint meeting hosted by UCF directly.
The time has come once again for this joint meeting! It will be held this Thursday evening, February 7th. It is free for all to attend, and it will also be the first joint meeting to include a virtual attendance option (as well as some virtual presenters)! A call-in link will be provided to those who RSVP. Refreshments will be served during the meeting networking time, and we will also honor the recipients of this year’s Melissa Pellegrin scholarships.
We worked closely with FTC to choose a topic that would be accessible to everyone, especially students and early-career professionals. This year’s topic is all about careers in technical communication, and we will be covering quite a few. 🙂
Here is our current presentation lineup:
- Alex Garcia: Instructional Design
- Rachel Eichen: Technical Trainer
- Michael Todd: User Assistance Designer
- Debra Johnson: Content Strategist
- Angela Trenkle: Technical Writer in the Bioresearch Industry
- Bethany Aguad: Technical Publications Coordinator
- C. Wiese: Navigating Your Career
