Lone Star Chapter’s Lightning Talk: Tech Writing Skills in Nontraditional Fields
August 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDTFree
For our monthly chapter meeting, we are partnering with the STC North Texas Lone Star Chapter to join their live meeting Lightning Talk: Tech Writing Skills in Nontraditional Fields virtually. We will have three speakers who are professionals with a background in technical writing that are currently in job roles unrelated to tech writing. This is to encourage tech writers to look at careers and jobs with titles that are not strictly “tech writer” or “technical communicator.”
8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. – Lightning talk presentations and Q&A.
Our speakers will share how their tech writing experiences prepared them for their careers, and what advice they have for someone looking to join their career field from a tech writing background. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so come meet these amazing professionals and learn about new career opportunities. A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session.
