Wednesday, May 12th – How COVID Changed Tech Comm Careers

Speaker: Andrew Davis


The pandemic rewrote many of the rules for tech writers. From WFH (work from home) norms to hiring to compensation, the world is different now. Some of the changes are already obvious, others much less so. Andrew will take a deep dive into COVID’s implications for your career and suggest ways you can benefit. He’ll also field your questions and advise about specific situations, so come ready to ask questions.

About the Speaker

Andrew Davis recruits technical content developers in Silicon Valley.

He is a former software industry Technical Writer and has a reputation for both understanding and championing the role of content development. He recruits Technical Writers, Technical Trainers, Courseware Developers, Instructional Designers, and Technical Marketing Writers for challenging staff and contract roles.

Andrew enjoys helping those who communicate complex information get ahead by recognizing and refining their value to technology companies. He’s candid and connected and, just as importantly, he likes to help tech industry workers gain their independence and operate without intermediaries.

He’d be happy to recruit you (or recruit for you) if you want his help.
