Technical Communication

URS assignment

Boy, it's been a busy time. So busy I haven't even blogged recently. But I thought I'd add here that I was recruited to a short contract at URS Corporation. I'm working to support a proposal to build a new hospital facility in Oakland, CA. My part of the job is almost microscopic. But it's still a wonderful position to see a large corporation in action. The assignment came by way of TechProse, a technical writing agency. I met TechProse founder Meryl Natches in a technical communication class, and she encouraged me to develop my informal interests through formal education. Technical communication is a natural fit to project management, another practice I continue to develop. And at URS it's easy to see how the good application of these skills supports massive engineering projects.
