Hi Manisha,

1. I consider myself to be lucky to be in a similar situation, i.e. I am
often handed new writing and organizational tasks. From what I've read on
TECHWR-L and other lists, this is common in small companies and generally
considered to be good news for the writer.
2. If they give you clear requirements and the resources that you need to
fulfill them, then it's not too much. If you don't get what you need, it's
up to you to say so.
3. As has been discussed interminably on TECHWR-L, job titles don't always
mean that much. However, some companies link raises and bonuses to changes
in job titles. Perhaps they should call you the Director of Communications,
Publications Manager, Information Specialist, etc.

Congratulations and Good Luck,

Dan Goldstein
