Landing Your First Technical Communication Job


On November 18th, 2010 I gave a presentation to the ECU English Students titled, “Landing Your First Technical Communication Job: 60 Tips in 60 Minutes.” In the 45-minute talk, I gave tips on how to:

  • Find tech writing jobs
  • Write resumes that work for hiring managers
  • Network locally, globally, and using social media
  • Update skills and keep up with technology for free or cheap

The presentation was recorded, but I don’t know if I will get that link yet. But for now, here’s a link to the presentation. Enjoy!

Thank you to all who contributed advice for the students. You can read those comments here.

If you enjoyed the conversation or have more questions, please feel free to comment below.
