UCF alum and technical communicator for over 15 years, John Paz will be leading a presentation with the Future Technical Communicators club about how to build a winning resume.
John Paz graduated from UCF in 2008 with a B.A. in English and a focus in Technical Writing. He has over 15 years of experience working in the tech industry as a Technical Writing and Content Designer. He worked extensively as a short-term contractor in Orlando for some of the more reputable simulation and training defense contractors in the area for nearly a decade. In 2015 John accepted an offer from an Australian tech company to relocate him and his entire family to Sydney. Then, the Aussie Pazzies relocated again, to San Francisco, and once more back to Orlando, where he resides today. Technical Writing has taken him around the world, and he wants to share his story and help aspiring tech professionals with practical advice to help land more interviews and secure a lucrative job working in tech.
John is also passionate about diversifying tech and regularly gives talks about how underrepresented folks can break into tech, and how working in technology can help break generational cycles of poverty.
