Meet our Employment Panel! Join Us Tonight, March 28th!

The STC Florida chapter has an annual tradition around this time of year: our Annual Employment Panel! The panelists’ names and bios are below! We invite a panel of hiring managers and professionals who hire and work with technical communicators to answer your questions about working in the field. This is a perfect chance to ask some experts your burning questions about interviewing, resumes, career advice, mentoring, work samples/portfolios, and more! I highly recommend joining us for this one if you are able.

Please click here and RSVP for our Annual Employment Panel!

Come prepared with your questions and hear stories from the ground floor of the hiring process. This panel will not only benefit early-career technical communicators but those with experience as well. It’s always a good idea to sharpen your interviewing skills, you never know what the future holds. We will be announcing this year’s panelists here in Memo to Members soon.

We will be charging the following rates for this meeting:

  • Free for students
  • $5 for STC Florida Chapter Members (part of Society for Technical Communication membership)
  • $15 for all other attendees
