Jimmy Chin, College Senior
Senior in college, tech comm major, looking for jobs
"The greatest job in the world would be one where I can travel around, living in different places, and using my tech comm skills. I don’t care so much what kind of company it is, so long as it has strong international opportunities."
Jimmy is a senior in college, a technical communication major looking for his first full-time employment. He’s open to taking any job that uses his skills and meets his salary requirements, but he really would like to find something that captures his interest and starts him on the path for his career.
Ever since he was a youngster moving around the world with his Air Force family, Jimmy has wanted to work abroad. He loves living in new places and learning how other people live, work, and play. The idea of starting to work for one company in the US and staying there his whole life sounds deadly dull to him. He’s had an internship in business and one in technical communication, and he knows he wants to put his TC skills to work in an international company of some kind.
Scenario of Use: Jimmy Chin
Jimmy Chin is a perfect candidate for an interactive element of the TCKP that allows him to find his mentor or mentors within STC. E-mailing members of the ITC SIG is a message-in-a-bottle approach: he can only hope that someone will find his message and respond to him. He might be more encouraged by being able to post a query to the entire STC membership on the TCKP site, in addition to directly querying members of the ITC SIG; however, he needs to know which members of the SIG to ask, which means he needs a way of getting information on the interests and areas of expertise of all the SIG’s members.
