How to Use LinkedIn Effectively in a Job Search
In this session, attendees will learn how to get the most out of LinkedIn during a job search. Sabra will share insights about: profiles, contacts, groups, searching the LinkedIn database, introductions, finding jobs, and preparing for interviews. The content will be adjusted based on the experience level of the audience.
Speaker: Sabra Goldick
Sabra gave a popular presentation at our job fair earlier this year, so we have asked her to come back and present to the entire chapter.
Congratulations to Jake Ashcraft, Master student in HCDE, who was awarded a $1000 STC scholarship.
From the STC Puget Sound website: The scholarship fund was originally (1986) set up to honor two Society Fellows who made significant contributions to STC (at both the chapter and society levels) and to the technical communication community as a whole. Among their many accomplishments, James W. Souther and Myron L. White were instrumental in establishing the Puget Sound Chapter. More recently, the chapter decided to also award a scholarship, and the two scholarships are awarded at the same time through one application period.
Enter this year’s STC Puget Sound competition! If you’ve entered an STC competition before, you know that it is a great way to get valuable feedback on your work as well as a chance to receive recognition for outstanding work. Whether or not you’ve ever entered a competition, we encourage you to consider entering some of the work that you’ve delivered over the last year or two. Use this low-risk opportunity to get feedback from your peers and to see how your work compares with the STC International standards.
We are accepting competition entries for Technical Publications, Online Communication, and Technical Art until October 2, 2009. Go to http://www.stc-psc.org/competition.php to learn about the various documentation sub-categories and about how to enter.
Interested in Judging? If you have published work in one of the competition categories, we encourage you to consider judging for the competition. Judging can be a very rewarding experience. As you evaluate some of the best work in the Puget Sound region, you will gain an in-depth appreciation of its innovation and expertise—and ideas for how to improve your own writing. Regardless of what you are judging, you’ll have the opportunity to get a peek at entries in all three competitions – Art, Online, and Publications. We always get a lot of interesting projects to look at.
