Hello and Merry Christmas, Whirlers!
My manager told me he was pleased with how I've been doing, but that he would like to get me involved even more with the company.
In your own experience, what kinds of corporate "chores" have you been asked to apply your skills to as technical communicators?
I'll Google around on my own too, and see what I can come up with.
