Career Planning in a Post-Pandemic World

Just Announced!

3 – 4 October 2022

Join STC for a two-day Online Seminar focused on Career Planning in a Post-Pandemic World!

COVID-19 has disrupted where we work, how we work, and sometimes even why we work. The impact of the pandemic was sudden, causing many to lose their jobs and shifting others to work from home to minimize contact with others. From the Great Resignation to a very competitive candidate market to extensive layoffs, we’ve seen massive swings in what’s happening in employment in the last couple of years.

These sizeable shifts have provided many opportunities for technical communicators. Clear and relevant communication is more essential than ever, providing valuable information about health care, improving interactions across an increasingly remote workforce, and building trust with your audience. How do you stay relevant and adapt your goals to this new world?

Attend two days of online seminars 3-4 October 2022 to learn more about planning your tech comm career in a new professional construct.
