At my last job, I asked for and was given a signing bonus as a condition of
employment. However, I had the advantage of knowing the company hiring
wanted me specifically and I left a company at which I was sort-of, mostly,
happy . . . well, comfortable and secure, anyway.

It is my experience, and the experience of many writers I know, that signing
bonuses are unusual for techwriters, though, and if I were hiring I'd not
offer one unless the circumstances were really unusual.
