The Topic

Balancing the Core and Future in Technical Communication

About the Session

Writing is a central part of our job in technical communication. We spend about 80% of our time on tasks like researching, writing, publishing, and maintaining documentation. However, it’s important to realize that 20% of our career depends on improving our skills for future growth.

Ignoring this could lead to job loss, especially with the growing role of AI in the market. Balancing our core responsibilities with skill improvement is essential for long-term success in technical communication. Instead of fearing AI’s impact on our jobs, we should see it as an opportunity for growth.

By using AI effectively, we can improve our contributions, increase our value, and protect our careers in this ever-changing field. Let’s embrace AI as a partner in our journey to improve our skills and continue to excel as technical communicators.
