WE'RE LOOKING FOR MEMBERS to contribute a first-person column for a future issue of Intercom. The magazine has a trio of member-focused columns: ‘My Job’ (your day-to-day work), ‘Off Hours’ (discussing your hobby or side gig), and ‘Looking Back’ (historical pieces of interest). ‘My Job’ takes a look at the day-to-day work of an STC member and what makes the job interesting, fun, or unique. ‘Off Hours’ is a look at the side jobs and hobbies our members have. ‘Looking Back’ focuses on senior members providing perspective earned throughout their career. Would you like to share your story with Intercom readers? Email Marisa Seitz, email hidden; JavaScript is required, for more information, samples, and to volunteer!
