>What titles exist for technical writers other than Technical
Some of you have heard this one before...but at my first tech writing
job, my title was "Aircraft Service Manuals Engineer."
Due to the "Engineer" in the title, and also because my badge ID'd me as
being in the Engineering Division, frequently the following scene would
occur out on the aircraft assembly line: I'd be checking data for a
manual, one of the production folk would be following me hoping that I'd
sign off on some particular variation or non-standard build, and chasing
-him- would be a frantic supervisor shouting "Don't let him sign! He's
not that type of engineer!!!"
