Abstract

The large-scale movement of jobs caused by offshore outsourcing affects both nations and industries, as shown by other chapters in this volume. While technical communicators may be able to influence these macrotrends in some ways, as individuals they are often left to adapt to conditions rather than drive them. Thus, an awareness of global currents and an understanding of the kinds of abilities required to navigate them is vital for individuals seeking to remain competitive in the field, as well as for the programs seeking to prepare them.
