Hi, all,

We're excited to announce the new TECHWR-L Employment
Central feature, which we added to the TECHWR-L site
over the weekend. Using this feature, you can

* Add technical communication related job postings
* Search or browse job postings
* Add your personal profile
* Search or browse personal profiles

We're thrilled with the participation so far!
Already today, 18 new job listings have been added to
the database, and the listing of personal profiles

In the meantime, we're hanging close to the computers
to answer questions and fix bugs as quickly as possible.
We've found and fixed several bugs this morning, so if
you've already visited and encountered an error, please
try again!

As always, we welcome your feedback--especially if
you encounter errors or problems with this new feature.
