I think there has been some history of this discussion, so you might want to
check the archives.

But in these trying times, it may take more effort than usual! My first
suggestion is to attend STC meetings (down, Andrew!) in your local area.
They are great places to start developing one of the most valuable
components of your job-finding arsenal - your personal network. Second, I
would volunteer your time and services to some local companies that develop
products you find interesting. Yes, it means working for free (or very
little) but it also means getting some real experience on your resume. And
you never know - many times interns impress the hiring company so much that
a spot is made for them when the time comes...

Best of luck, and welcome!

My name is Joan Wagner, and I am a junior majoring in
business and technical communications. I am running
into some problems gaining experience, which might
hurt me after graduation. I was wondering if anyone
had any suggestions for someone just starting out.
