Reflecting on the Technical Communicator's Image
Abstract:In a national survey of STC members, nearly one-third of the respondents expressed significant frustration about their professional image. Some contended that colleagues did not respect them, others professed that supervisors did not appreciate their efforts, and still others earnestly contemplated leaving the field because of their undervalued role. Why do these unfavorable impressions exist? Perhaps our professional image aptly mirrors our professional ableness.
