Howdy List,

This is my first post, so take it easy on me! Maybe you guys can
provide some insight about what I need to finally land that tech
writing job.

- I have a BA in Technical Writing
- I have decent computer skills: I maintain a website that I
hand-coded, I've written a few scripts, I use Linux.
- I'm a pretty good writer in general (though rusty at the moment)
- I'm an all-around great guy :-)

I'm sure the employers on this list are just chomping at the bit.
Here are some "problem areas":

- My resume is terrible. It's old, has nothing but coursework and
unrelated experience on it.
- I don't really know the tools. FrameMaker? Ack. Word? Haven't
messed with a Microsoft product in a while...
- The skills I have, I can't easily define.

If I get any response from this post, I suspect it will be of a "you
can't get there from here" variety--but I thought I'd throw it out
there, anyway.
