What are you worth?

July 27, 2009

Although Pamela Hewitt’s article — titled What are you worth? — is written for editors, many of the points she addresses apply equally to the technical communication profession. If you’re in the editing or technical communication fields, I strongly recommend you read it. Now.

I particularly liked:

If I undercut my colleagues, in the long run I undercut myself. If I sell myself short, I sell my colleagues short. If I don’t value my own services, I undervalue the services of my colleagues. I prefer not to do any of these things. I would rather that my colleagues didn’t behave this way towards me.
