STC-SF presents Andrew Davis with Work-Life Balance in Tech?
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Is work-life balance (WLB) possible? Specifically, can technical writers achieve professional security and whole-human fulfillment in the SF Bay Area? Andrew Davis knows thousands of tech writers and says sustained equanimity and professional competitiveness for tech writers in Northern California is a myth. Our business is survivable, but it takes a heavy toll; pretending otherwise is unwise. Come hear Andrew talk about the features and bugs, patches, and point releases of WLB in tech. He’ll also discuss how independent contractors and temp workers, who invariably have more significant WLB challenges than staff employees, can optimize their compromises.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Recruiter of technical content developers — mostly software technical writers, trainers, course developers, editors, and marcom writers — in the SF Bay Area. Find out the latest at Synergistech Communications.
