2015-2016 STC Salary Database: Utilizing the Information and Key Trends
The 2015-2016 STC Salary Database is now available and this report holds a wealth of knowledge for job-seekers, employees who want to see how their pay compares to other technical writers, and employers reviewing employee compensation levels. While the volume of information in the report may, at first, seem overwhelming, this webinar teaches users how to best sort through all the numbers. Participants will learn how to utilize the information in the STC Salary Database to its maximum advantage without needing to be a statistical expert and without requiring a substantial amount of time in analysis. Additionally, key compensation and employment trends will be discussed along with their relationship to the economy as a whole.
In this session, the following questions (and more) will be answered:
- What is the health of the occupation?
- How does your pay compare to other technical writers?
- Are technical writers experiencing the same pay increases as other occupations?
- Which areas in the United States are hot spots for technical writers?
- How are technical writers paid versus other media and communication occupations?
- Which industry sectors are seeing the most growth for the occupation?
