Sometimes it is funny how things workout…

Due tomorrow, on my boss’ desk, is my first rough cut of my new job description.

Yup you heard it right, I get to write my own job description. Then I will work with my boss to make sure that not much of it changes drastically.

This feels like the opportunity of a lifetime for me. I get to define the role I will be transitioning into as Technical Support’s Tech Writer. I will even, or so it appears, have 2 other people working with me from the India office which actually puts my position into a larger editorial role than first anticipated. Not only will I be creating content and solid deliverables, but I will also be editing and revising the content and deliverables created by my Indian counterparts.

This really is a dream come true, and I have the pull and say right now to make sure it fits me like a glove. The only thing left today is to actually take all the Tech writer job descriptions I found on the internet and compile and reduce them into one kick-ass description of what I will be doing come October.

  1. And will you also be learning Hindi or Bengali (or any other language your Indian counterparts may speak)?

  2. Wow, what an incredible opportunity! I bet you don’t have ANY regrets about leaving the other company now, eh?

  3. Nope. They will be producing texts in English, and I will get to clean it up. Which, by the by, is what I am already kind of doing anyways as second level support and dealing with escalations from our front line India crew.

  4. I don’t have any regrets and never did. I DO still feel a bid sad at leaving, but am very happy I took the chance and returned to this company.

    Honestly, I am a bit shocked and surprised that things are actually moving in a direction that meets my goals. I truly never thought I’d see the day.

  5. Can’t get much better than a dream come true, eh? This is great to hear!

  6. Not much better, no… the only thing I can hope for now is that the transition actually occurs as expected.

  7. That’s no fun…doing work in a language you can’t speak is always more exciting!!! 😉
