IT pros can benefit from developing writing skills, Software Quality Connection story on developing writing skills, tips for IT pros to develop writing skills
I wish I could take credit for today’s great headline, but I cheerfully confess that my friend and occasional editor Esther Schindler is the wordsmith for same (read the recent article I wrote for her entitled “Soft Skills in Writing Can Boost Any Software Developer’s Career Profile“) in an e-mail plug she assembled for that story. This recent article claims to be for software developers and indeed explains how they in particular can benefit from developing soft skills in writing, but any IT professional who’s not a programmer with a lick of sense could read the story and glean lots of useful information from it, even if I do say so myself.
Anybody in IT who wants into more senior positions will have to do some writing to meet their increased on-the-job responsibilities. And indeed such positions usually come with higher pay. That’s what makes Esther’s headline absolutely correct, and well nigh irresistible. Check out the story, and see what you think!
