I've always been envious of California because the state is so rich in chapters of STC (Society for Technical Communication). Check out the chapter websites from the link pages at and find a chapter near you.

I suggest this for three reasons. First, you can build your portfolio by volunteering for the chapter website or newsletter. Second, you can network with real, working technical writers (and *many* headhunters) at chapter meetings. Third, you can build your professional competence by spending time with other people who care about technical writing.

Very good luck with your job hunt--don't give up!

Original message....

I recently received my B.A. in Technical Writing, and have been trying to get a job for months. I followed people's advice while I was in school: Put together a good portfolio, get internships, go to the university career center, etc., but I haven't had any luck. ...
So does anyone have suggestions for finding an entry-level writing/editing job? Do they even exist? Location doesn't matter anymore--I'm willing to move since CA companies don't seem to want me....
