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.

The EServer TC Library contains numerous articles on interviewing and job listings.

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