Thanks to the STC and Liz Fraley for posting this on Facebook for me to see.

I’m fortunate that I’m friends with Adriane Hunt, the STC President who is quoted in this article. It’s great to know that technical writing is listed as #3 on the US News & World Report’s top Creative & Media Jobs list.  Adriane is a member of the STC-Philadelphia Metro Chapter (STC-PMC), which I’m currently the vice-president of, and she’s had lots of great takeaways over the years from attending STC-PMC programs and events (like the CONDUIT conference) and other STC events.

This is a great read to remind us why we stick with technical writing and communications.  It’s a profession that continues to grow, even when we think it isn’t, and we can gain great satisfaction from doing the job. It also doesn’t hurt that technical writers are usually great people as well. Adriane is a great example of that.

Check out the interview I did with her almost two years ago…the video is spotty (it was the first time I was doing it, and we had some unforeseen technical issues), but listen to the conversation, and you can see why Adriane and the STC has a great future.
