March 19 Meeting: Ageism and Today’s Technical Communicator
Friday, 07 March 2014

ABOUT THE MEETING:

Andrew Davis is a recruiter of technical content developers in the SF Bay Area. He hears regularly from candidates and hiring managers experiencing frustrations that are (in part) related to ageism and generational differences. Motivated to make more successful job matches and empower qualified candidates, he’ll think aloud through the symptoms, causes, and potential solutions for ageism, all the while seeking your input. Come prepared to participate; it’s sure to be a lively meeting.
