Do all technical communicators have business cards? I am working at a
corporation that does not issue business cards unless the employee has extensive
outside contact (e.g., sales or managers). When I attended an STC meeting to
recruit for an open position, I was told to give out my director's business card
instead. I have offered to pay for my own company business cards, but this too
was not allowed. I have resolved the issue by purchasing my own business cards
that do not have any company identification on them, but I was wondering whether
anyone else had experienced a similar struggle to be recognized as a
professional. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks for your feedback,
Virginia Butler
