What is STC Carolina?
What is technical communication?
Career / Jobs
I’m looking for a job or trying to break into technical communication. How can STC Carolina help me?
Where can I find local job listings?
One of the best sites to find job posts is LinkedIn. Not only are jobs posted, but you can also review connections who work at the company and might be able to share more information. STC Carolina members periodically share job listings across our social media channels, particularly LinkedIn and Facebook. Although less often, we also share higher priority job openings from local employers in our Announcements. Finally, you can check out the society-wide STC job bank.

What kind of events do you offer?
We hold monthly chapter meetings featuring presentations on topics of interest to technical communicators. Speakers at recent meetings have discussed job search strategies, training trends, accessibility, and software user assistance. We also offer tools training workshops, socials, a banquet in the spring, and career/resume workshops.
Our annual competition provides entrants an opportunity to get expert feedback on their technical communications products and judges an opportunity to see different kinds of documents and hone their editing and critical reading skills. All of our events are open to both STC members and nonmembers.
