TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Try the Real Rates Survey (www.realrates.com) and its companion
site, the Real Salary Survey. The first is for contract rates,
the companion is for salaried positions. The last year's worth
of survey submissions are searchable by skills, software packages,
job title, location, qualifications, etc.
I also recommend that everyone participate in these surveys.
The more who take part, the more useful these sites will be for
everyone. (I'd personally like to see more tech writers listed,
and more from the Midwest.)
