Hi everyone, we were asked to distribute a survey for Arizona State

Survey information:

Eva Brumberger and a colleague are researching current workplace practices
of technical/professional communicators, including technical writers, UX
designers, content developers, social media writers, etc. We started by
analyzing ~1500 technical communication job postings to identify the
skills, technologies, and personal characteristics (e.g. initiative,
leadership, etc.) that employers were seeking. The results are published in
two articles in *Technical Communication*: the first (Nov 2015) focusing
on information development jobs, the second (coming out next month) on UX

The second stage of the project focuses on practitioner perspectives rather
than employer perspectives. This summer, we interviewed several
technical/professional communicators and shadowed them in their workplaces.
Building on that data, we are now surveying technical/professional
communicators about the competencies they use on the job on a daily
basis. The survey should take no longer than 10-15 minutes; you can access
it here:

The project data will help academic programs better prepare students for
their roles in the workplace, and will provide practitioners with extensive
up-to-date information about the field that may be especially useful for
those seeking new jobs or thinking about career paths. Iâd be happy to
answer any questions about the project.

Thank you for your help!

This seems like a good survey and we hope you all will take a little time
to fill it out.

All the best
