October: The Technical Communicator in a Contract Role

An evening workshop devoted to contractors, contracting firms, and contract work

In this evening workshop, we will briefly touch on the tried and true components… resumés, work samples, and interviewing. But we will focus on working with consulting firms, finding contract projects, and moving to the contract world from the employee role. We will also cover some new things like social media and virtual components as these impact the ever-evolving work environments.

As more and more companies utilize technical communicators in contract roles, our moderated panel will focus on things you need to know to get good contracts. We will answer questions like “How do you choose a consulting firm?” and “Do you need to be represented by a consulting firm to get the best contracts?”

The evening’s focus will be on the moderated panel, with time for questions. It will also include a hands-on portion that will focus on the “dos and don’ts” of social media and the role social media plays in establishing your personal brand.
