As we announced last week, for the whole month of June, Firehead’s CJ Walker will be curating the STC Roundtables on the topic of ‘Career transitions in techcomm‘. The aim is to gather and share insight that will help technical communicators understand their future career options and how they can apply their skills in the wider market of digital communications – and beyond.
Each Wednesday new content will be launched across a range of future career development issues. This week it is ‘Resources’ to help you in your career transition. There is an in-depth article identifying linked skills for taking your technical communication career into new areas, and what you need to do to fill the gap for your next career move – essentially a roadmap to a potential new career.
To access this content, visit the STC’s page for the Career transitions roundtable.
Members of the STC get discounted access of nearly 50%, while STC Gold members receive free access to all STC Roundtable content. Non-members can also subscribe to roundtable content on payment of a subscription fee.
There is a different curator for each month, each sharing their own in-depth expertise and providing content and discussion around a key topic.
Next week, there will be an open panel discussion on where digital communication market trends and hiring are going in the next 10 years, and what career progression is possible for techcomm professionals both inside and outside the field.
