Lauren,

I agree entirely with your logic. I was recently introduced to someone who, when I told her what I did ("I'm a technical writer"), responded, "What's that?" This person has a PhD and makes WAY more money than I do.

That is a great one!

Maybe I'll use that on the résumé. I'm sure it could start a conversation.

Interviewer: "What's a 'documentation engineer'?"

Me: "It's a technical writer."

I: "Why don't you just call yourself a technical writer?"

M: "Because no one knows what it is."
