Whether you are a veteran of technological sophistication, just beginning one’s career in IT or technical communication, or even a novice player in the digital economy, there are many free technologies that can be used to complement, enhance, and simplify one’s technical tasks, business processes, documentation, as well as enrich and restructure workflows. These free tech tools can be directly applied in a work role or used simply to build one’s creative and technical skills. Furthermore, as technical, analytical, and even customer service work roles become more competitive, the catch-22 for those just entering the workforce is: no one will hire an individual without experience, but one cannot gain experience if no one will hire her or him.
