Salary Survey Open Now!

***** Survey data collection ends April 18! *****

For the 2014 STC Austin salary survey, the Austin communities of the Society for Technical Communication (STC) and the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) have partnered to conduct a survey of salaries, contract rates, and other compensation for professionals in the Austin area in the overlapping domains of technical communication and user experience. The survey is being conducted by a committee of individuals who are members of both organizations.

The intent is to characterize compensation for technical communicators in the Central Texas area during last year. It will also include a few questions pertaining to current statuses. You do not need to be a member of either STC or UXPA to participate. The only qualifications for participation are the following:

  • You earn at least some of your compensation by being a technical communicator. (Categories include technical writers and editors, content developers, documentation specialists, technical illustrators, instructional designers, academics, information architects, usability and human factors professionals, visual designers, Web designers and developers, and translators—anyone whose work makes technical information available to those who need it.)
  • OR
  • You earn at least some of your compensation by being a usability professional. The profession includes researching, designing, and evaluating the user experience of products and services.
  • Your primary residence/working environment was in Central Texas for at least part of 2013.

The deadline to take the survey is April 18, 2014 at 11:45 P.M.
