Webinar: Successfully Shaping the Future Profession of Technical Communicators (26.04.2017)
Yvonne Gasser, tekom Österreich
On April 26, 2017, the second tekom Europe webinar took place, hosted by tekom Österreich. After a short introduction, Franz Steiner (president of tekom Österreich) handed over to Jürgen Sapara (manager of consultancy at tecteam), who presented the latest facts and figures from surveys on requirements and salaries in the field of Technical Communication. Mr. Sapara also lined out professional perspectives for Technical Communicators as well as options for occupational professionalization, such as the tekom competence framework, qualification consultation, and certification as a technical communicator. With such an international audience taking part (29 participants from more than 5 countries), the speaker seized the chance to take polls on the audience's current situation (see figures below) and aptly integrated the results in his presentation.
The webinar was recorded and the recording is available free of charge.
