Technical communicators regional conference -New Delhi 2017

From the page of a diary-2017

12/08/2017 It was a great gathering of technical communicators in Gurgaon. Good to see the delegates fly from Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Ahmadabad to listen to the eminent speakers. Most of the delegates were senior level, it would have great if the younger generation would have participated as well.
Two young speakers were truly impressive Rinni Mahajan and Padma Swaroop Mandapaka. You guys are the future.

Out of the box session from Minakshi, and marketing communication from Piyush (Spice digital) was very informative. Rajiv's talk on the management of the virtual team was great in such a short span of time. Inputs from the audience like from  Rahul, Hemant Mishra, and Meenakshi made this event more interesting.

Thanks to Manisha for taking the pain to organize this.

Participants at Delhi-NCR  Regional Conference. 

I strongly feel only Bangalore should not have all the fun New Delhi deserve too.

Looking at the delegates I am confident about the upcoming event  Information Developers Conclave- New Delhi is going to be well received.

Few days are left only for the last date of sponsoring the event and speaker's proposal that is almost about to finish. Few speakers proposal are so compelling that our event committee decided to confirm them without any delay.

5 best ways to provide writing samples

Producing technical writing sample during interview

During the interview, it is very common when the interviewer asks for the writing sample, this happens with all of us. So, what to do in that case?

No silver bullet but we can take few approach.

Why they want it and what is stopping you from doing that?

Why they want it?

  1. Want to see your writing style and skill
  2. Grammer proficiency
  3. Tool used by you
  4. Domain you worked
  5. Style guide knowledge
  6. Continue....

What is stopping you?

You may not have it- You never carry anything from office hardcopy or softcopy. Good job this is expected from you.

  1. If you are not violating confidentiality, the security or any legal issue you can carry and distribute all depend on nature of the document.So when you are producing anything from your past job make sure you are violating any legal issue. Your perspective employer will understand this.
  2. You can also create documents that look and speak exactly the same as the ones with sensitive information, but change the names and identities of the topics.
  3. A next approach could be to invest some time researching the company you are applying to and use any information you can to create something "for" them. Who knows, they may hire you on the spot!
  4. For 'public' profiles, take a screenshot of one page (UG) or one topic (help system) that illustrates your work. get permission from the client to do this, but, in general, use an older version of the documentation, not the most recent version.You can also, use a photo editor to remove any product-identifying, company-identifying, or proprietary information... like product names or feature names specific enough to a product to identify the company.
  5. If you can't use any of your previous work, you could create some sample documentation for FrameMaker, Word, or RoboHelp since you're already familiar with these tools.
Good Luck! Want to read your story, write in comment box.
