STC WDCB First Friday Lunch in August: Fuddruckers, Columbia, MD

We had a terrific turnout last year when we hosted a First Friday Lunch at Fuddruckers in Columbia, MD. Join us again on Friday, August 7th from Noon to 1 pm ET. Liz Herman, STC WDCB First Vice President, will be hosting this event. Join your fellow chapter members and technical communicators for networking, merriment, and, if you’re feeling spicy, an Inferno Burger! Tickets are free to the event, but you are responsible for the purchase of your own lunch.

We are delighted to announce a collaboration with the students and staff of the Writing and Rhetoric program at George Mason University. The event will have something for those entering the profession, as well as job seekers and professionals.

Would you like to learn more about technical communication as a career? Are you currently seeking a job in technical communication? Or, are you a technical or professional communicator who would like to boost some of your career and communications skills?

The Building your Professional Identity in Technical Communication workshop will give you the opportunity to learn more about careers in technical communication, gain valuable feedback on resumes or your writing portfolio, and connect you to area students and professionals in technical communication.

The Workshop will feature three breakout sessions: Resumes, Portfolios, and Social Media/Online Presence. Each breakout session will combine presentations by experts in technical communication with one-on-one time for feedback on your materials and Q&A.

Current students, alumni, local professionals, and members of STC are welcome to join. This event is free to all participants. Refreshments will be provided.

Sponsored by the George Mason University Student Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (GMU STC), with support from the Professional Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) Program at GMU and the STC Washington DC-Baltimore Chapter (WDCB).

We will be meeting at George Mason University’s Fairfax campus in The Hub, Meeting Rooms 1 and 2. From the main entrance, Meeting Rooms 1 and 2 are down the corridor to the left. The Hub is building 56 on the GMU map, in red.

There is usually ample parking in George Mason’s parking garages. The closest garage is the Shenandoah Parking Deck. The Shenandoah Parking Deck is building 43 on the GMU map, in purple. The Mason Pond deck is often a good back-up, and it isn’t quite as full. Parking can be challenging at Mason, so please be sure to leave yourself extra time (and patience!) to grapple with traffic.
