Mentoring Program Applications Open Now

Author: John Clement

The Florida Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC), in conjunction with the Future Technical Communicators (FTC) at UCF, is proud to announce its mentoring program, pairing veterans from the front lines of the industry with talented technical communication students and new technical communicators. The goal: to bridge the gap between industry and academe.

Applications are open until Friday, October 23.

Apply now: https://stc-orlando.org/announcements/students-apply-for-the-2020-2021-stc-florida-mentoring-program/

Once the program coordinators review your application, they will create an optimal mentor-mentee pair for you based on goals, skills, and learning styles. After that, there will be a kickoff meeting where mentees will get to meet their mentors for the first time.

STC Student Membership is required to be in the mentoring program. Membership purchased now costs $75 and lasts until the end of the next calendar year (12/31/2021). On top of becoming eligible for the Mentoring Program, student members gain free attendance to the STC Florida Chapter’s monthly meetings, networking opportunities, and more. You do not need to be a member at the time of submitting the application, but you do by the time the program begins.

For any questions, email program coordinators Bethany Aguad and John Clement at mentorship@stc-orlando.org.
