If you’re starting—or re-starting—a career in technical communication, you may be asking yourself questions such as:
- Where are the jobs?
- What trends do I need to be aware of?
- How can I show an employer that I can do the job?
In this one-hour webinar, Jonathan Price will give you tips on shaping your career so that you can do interesting work that pays well. You’ll learn what skills are in demand, as we say goodbye to documents and hello to content, sparking virtual conversations with the public, and improving business and technical communication within an organization. And you’ll see how to demonstrate your own unique value to potential employers, in each interaction, from application through to interviews.
