The Radford job codes are the most accurate descriptors of job levels in technical occupations, including technical writers. If your company is a subscriber, your HR dept should be able to obtain the descriptions for you. Whether they will or not is another matter.

Hi, all.

We got into this topic a little while ago when I asked for your thoughts about the difference between a principal writer and a senior writer.

I understand from your answers that job levels and titles vary widely between companies and there is no hard-and-fast rule or set of job standards.

HOWEVER, I need some reasonable resource to refer to that goes over this ground and makes the basic distinctions. An STC publication? A Bureau of Labor publication?

If you know of any resource that establishes what you consider to be reasonable levels of tech writer job proficiency, I would love to know about it. I need to refer to more than my own opinions when I discuss this topic in a few days.

Thanks for any and all help.
