Workshop: Visualizing Your Career in Tech Comm
By: Nick Ducharme
Florida Chapter, STC
One of my goals as VP this year was to help bring about at least one Saturday workshop with both virtual and in-person attendance options. The results of our summer 2018 survey have driven several of our initiatives this year, and a lot of you demonstrated a particular interest in workshops. Some of you have also stated that a long Saturday workshop can offer a compelling incentive for people from outside the Central Florida area (people we normally do not get to network with in-person) to drive out our way. More bang for your buck in a single visit when compared to an hour-long chapter meeting on a weeknight. And we agree! It makes perfect sense.
So here it is: a workshop titled Visualizing Your Career in Tech Comm! Please join us this Saturday, April 27th from 9 am to 12:30 pm EST.
This workshop session, hosted by the University of Central Florida, is free for both members and nonmembers to attend either in-person or online. It is designed not only for newcomers to the technical communication field, but also established tech comm professionals thinking about that next big career step. We will be covering:
- Career Paths in Technical Communication
- Résumé Checklist and Peer Review
- Job Search and Placement Strategies (including examples of real tech comm job postings in Florida right now)
- And more!
Those who attend in-person will also have access to water, coffee, and donuts on us. And for those so inclined, we will be having a social after the workshop at Bahama Breeze in nearby Waterford Lakes.
Please click here fill out the Tech Comm Career Interest Assessment, which will be driving part of the workshop discussion, and also upload your résumé when prompted if you would like to take part in the optional Résumé Peer Review.
