Information Interview Service

The STC Canada West Coast chapter’s Information Interview Service gives you the opportunity to talk one-on-one with a volunteer senior technical writer. Why do this?

  • You’re a technical writing student, and conducting an interview is part of your course work.
  • You’re considering entering the field of technical writing as a first or second career and want to learn about training, education, job-hunting, pay ranges, skills, tools, or career planning.
  • You’re already a technical writer but you want to speak to a more experienced writer about a current issue or problem.

We can help! Arrange a 30- to 60-minute interview (timing at the discretion of the senior writer), either in person or on the phone.

To request an information interview, send an email to Include your telephone number and a sentence or two about your situation and why you want an interview, so we can match you with a suitable interviewee.

We suggest an optional donation of $25 for the service. The donation helps our chapter offer program events and other benefits to our members.
