Hello everyone,

I am about to graduate with an MS in Instructional Technology. We have been
discussing how the job duties for various training and documentation
professionals is changing. There seems to be a trend moving from
"specialization" towards "wearing multiple hats." I thought it would be
interesting to get some data on this from professionals currently working in
the field.

I would really appreciate some feedback from any who are willing to complete
all or part of the following brief survey. I would like to share your
responses with my friends and colleagues interested in the field of
technical writing. Feel free to reply to me directly, and I will post
general results of the responses. Thank you. Cameron
