This is an interesting article, as I think this definitely applies to the tech comm field especially. It’s not unusual for technical communicators to be brought into projects as either short term or long term contracts, so it’s built into the industry right now. I can attest to that point, but I can also attest to both looking for flexible schedules and climbing up the career ladder as the reasons why I end up job hopping a lot. I am that woman they speak of in the article! At this point in my career, it’s the only way to go if I want to stay employed at all. How many of my female readers can relate to this article as well? Do you think this is something that works for or against women? Include your comments below. –TechCommGeekMom
