When asked how well her course work in the Technical and Business Writing program prepared her for the work she performs in her career, Scammel replied that her courses helped her develop many of the skills and work habits she relies on every day. She told students in the room that the courses they are taking now will definitely prepare them for work in the technical writing field.
