2017 ATTW Career Workshop

Since 2009, under the leadership of Richard Johnson-Sheehan and Lisa Meloncon, the Association of Teachers of Technical Writing (ATTW) has offered a successful Career Workshop at the annual conference. Each year, about 25 faculty members and 30 graduate students participate.

The workshop gives graduate students in Technical Communication, Professional Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition opportunities to meet with faculty from a variety of universities.

The workshop will be held at the ATTW Conference in Portland, OR on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 from 4:00 to 5:15 pm. (Rooms TBD.) The ATTW Conference meets at the DoubleTree by the Hilton Portland, 1000 NE Multnomah St.. (You can learn more about ATTW and the ATTW Conference at http://www.attw.org/conference).

The workshop format is “speed dating.” Graduate students and faculty members meet one-to-one in five minute segments, so they can share ideas, talk about the job market, and discuss preparing for the job search.

Graduate students:

The format gives you an opportunity to meet professors from other universities, discuss your career goals and learn more about their programs. You will also receive a helpful 20-page guide that will help you navigate the job search process from beginning to end.
Please RSVP to Lora Arduser by February 24. Then, bring a one-page CV and business cards that you can leave with people in the workshop and at the conference. You do not need to be registered for the conference to participate in the workshop, but we encourage you to join us for the day.
If you have questions, email Lora Arduser (lora.arduser@uc.edu) or Lisa Meloncon (lisa.meloncon@uc.edu).

Faculty:

This workshop is always fun, and it’s a good way to meet up-and-coming members of our field and potential members of the ATTW. Even if your program isn’t hiring next year, we could use your expertise and wisdom. There is no preparation. If you might be hiring, though, this workshop is a great way to meet the people who you might want to interview next year.
To volunteer, email Lora Arduser (lora.arduser@uc.edu) with your name and affiliation by February 24, 2017.
If you are unable to attend, please share this post with your graduate students who might be interested.
