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.
Recently my manager told me she had to submit job titles based on descriptions that were given to her by HR. This is because our company is going through a salary audit. She told me that because I don't have a bachelors degree, I am being demoted to a Junior Technical Writer.
I have been working at my current job for nearly four years. Three and a half of those years I have had the title of Technical Writer. I have the most seniority of anyone in my department. I have been seeking a degree for some time and I am a junior, but being employed full-time does not allow me to take as many classes as I would like.
I am wondering if anyone out there has had a similar experience. Because of this title change I will not be getting the adjustment that everyone else will receive.
