Technical Communication, 2010


Occupation: Technical Writer & Editor at IEM

I graduated from N.C. State in May 2008 with a B.A. in English, and in May 2010 with an M.S. in Technical Communications. Right before graduation in 2010, I was offered and accepted a job as a technical writer and editor at IEM, a Federal contractor in emergency management and disaster recovery. I have thoroughly enjoyed my job, especially because it deviates away from what I originally thought technical writing was restricted to (i.e., software or information technology subject matter). The aspect that I enjoy the most about my job is participating in the development of plans that will help communities better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies.
