TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I find business cards that are helpful are those that tell me what you
actually do (tech writer), rather than how you wish to be perceived
(information architect, etc.), or some representation of your position in
the hierarchy (documentation supervisor).
On the other hand, these days it's quite common to see business cards with
out any job title, just the name of the group to which one belongs, e.g. in
your case "Aerospace Engineering".
