I must say that I would resist hiring anyone for a Publications
position that seriously asked such a question. Perhaps you ask the
question as a joke, or "to stir up the anthill"?
(Dons his asbestos union suit.) Perhaps a different career might
better suit you.

To all Technical Writers:
Is good grammar important for effective technical communications? About
six months ago, I read a book on procedures writing that said "Numerous
studies have concluded that there is no correlation at all between
effective technical communications and grammar".
