RE: Promotion (was RE: IT documentation)
If you're the lone writer and the sr. technical writer, what is there to
be promoted to? This has been my problem for the last 4 years.
I suppose it depends on the company you work for. It doesn't matter to me what my title is; my pay and benefits are more important. If I felt that I was not being compensated fairly for my efforts, I would definitely talk to my manager and see how to restructure things so that I was.
I wouldn't know how to work in a company where there was even a chance for promotion (the lone writer thing has always been good to me). I simply do my job, do it well, and go home satisfied at the end of the day.
Lone Technical Writer, Requirements Analyst, Software Test Manager, and Configuration Manager
