Subject:Can strong process create writers? From:Colleen Adams <colleen_adams -at- MEDISPAN -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 9 Nov 1998 22:18:49 -0500
Question for all (newbies and old-timers):
Do you think that a strong documentation process can actually create a
technical writer (entry-level) out of someone who shows potential for
this field, yet has no real world experience? (let me know if you need
more background info in order to respond...I'll elaborate, if necessary...)
I'd appreciate your comments. Thanks!!!
