Selecting and Hiring

Like hiring professionals in any other field, hiring qualified technical communicators involves

  • determining your requirements
  • writing the job description and/or job posting
  • posting the job, and
  • screening/interviewing candidates.

Resources for finding qualified technical communicators are available through local educational institutions. The STC Academic Programs Database contains a listing of universities and colleges with technical communication programs and intern or outplacement services.
