Or: “We’ve got so many jobs, you don’t even know.”
By Caitlyn Hunter and John Clement
We here at FTC know how hard it can be to be on the job hunt. “Technical Communicator” isn’t a common job title, so we understand the struggle of trying out multiple search phrases and applying endless filters in search programs like LinkedIn or Indeed. The whole process can be exhausting and sometimes discouraging, so we decided to make it a little easier for all of you.
John and I have had many colleagues and friends send in advice, internships, and job opportunities. We have culminated them all here with simple descriptions to allow for easy skimming. There’s no promise that there’s a position here for you, but with 18 openings and many more leads, we hope to help at least some of you get connected with an opportunity you might not have otherwise found.
With all this said, we wish you luck on the job hunt and for finding that perfect position.
FTC will be presenting along with other technical clubs and companies at this year’s Otronicon. The expo will be taking place this weekend from February 12-15.
