Shelly wonders about career longevity...
Well, Shelly, I've been with the same company for nine years this time around.
(I say "this time around" because I started out here in 1979 as a shipping
clerk, then worked my up to tech writer, then left for a year and a half. I
came back in '86 as a Senior Tech Writer.) I'm currently an Instructional
Designer, having transferred departments a little over two years ago.
