"Seeding the Clouds - How to Make it Rain Even During a Dry Spell"

Join us online in-person or remotely as John Hedtke presents (remotely) 2 dozen ways you've likely not thought of to search for a job!

Presentation description:

Even in the best of times, it can be a challenge to find work. Technical communicators are occasionally at an added disadvantage of having to sell the value of our profession as well as ourselves as candidates, so anything we can do to give ourselves an edge is helpful. 

This presentation by international award-winning author John Hedtke is of great value both to people who are currently seeking jobs as well as those who are secure in their current positions. It will show you two dozen ways to find work as a technical communicator that you probably haven't even considered. There will be tips on common ideas such as updating your resume and creating a portfolio, but the presentation will rapidly expand to discuss ways in which you might create work for yourself and open up new work venues.
