Let's Talk Technical Documentation — Building Your Tech Docs Team

Presented by

Guest: Deborah Vatani > Host: Paul Perrotta

About this talk

Hiring is one of the most important activities a leader does and has an enormous effect on your team. Plenty can go wrong. Learn how to approach hiring from veteran leaders. There's what we're told about hiring--rules, guidelines, and so on. But hiring is so much more than company rules about the process. It's not just a chore, but an opportunity to enhance your team and organization. If you don't get it right, you risk destroying your team and the trust you have today. Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Documentation Wrangler, and his guest, Deborah Vatani, who has 30+ years of hiring employees and consultants. Together, Paul and Deborah will talk about three primary areas for good hires as part of the business of running a modern content organization: 1. You must plan what you're looking for in your candidates, and no matter how many times you've done this, you cannot wing it. 2. Take a risk! No one ever achieved great things by setting small goals. 3. You must set goals for each candidate and evaluate them based on those goals. Deborah has run large and small teams in several companies. Getting the hiring right is a necessary key to success. We will discuss the above points and talk about the details around them. We hope you'll join us for the show! "Let's Talk Technical Documentation" is brought to you by The Content Wrangler.
