STC Intercom Article, "Millennials' Outlook on Technical Communication"

In the summer of 2016, I interviewed technical communicators in their twenties and thirties, the millennial generation, and wrote about their perceptions of their profession and careers in an article for the October 2016 issue of Society for Technical Communication's Intercom Magazine. I enjoyed learning why each person entered the technical communication profession, and I learned a lot about the different types of personalities attracted to technical writing, which helped me develop the narrative for this article. I balanced out the millennial viewpoints with one from a Baby Boomer, who is encouraged by what he sees in the upcoming generation of technical communicators.
