Volunteer Opportunities

We are current looking for more people to write articles for the website. If you would like to write something, but aren’t sure what to write about, here are some suggestions:

  • How to sell technical writing to your employer
  • Best website tools to build your own site
  • How to maintain your network
  • Training best practices: creation and delivery
  • Informational interviews: benefits for a job search, how to prepare
  • Using social media for your job search
  • Career planning
  • Review a tool: Framemaker, Flare, Robohelp, InDesign
  • Mac vs. PC for getting the job done
  • Positive messaging
  • Opportunities for technical communication in particular industries
  • Building a client base
  • Tips for simplifying social media
  •  Review a book or resource
  • Ways to maximize membership
  • Writing for mobile

Articles should be 300–600 words in length and will be run through one or two editors before being posted. New technical writers are encouraged to write articles. It’s a great way to create or update portfolio pieces and increase your on-line profile.

If interested in writing an article, please let the Volunteer Coordinator know and specify the topic of the article.
