> what would you specify as the important capabilities and credentials
needed by today's candidates for tech writing careers. - Herm
Off the cuff ...

- Desire to help others and learn new technologies
- Distaste for office politics
- Non-lemming like attitude. People who think and contribute
- Secure in their abilities and smart enough to admit their shortcomings
present oportunities to grow

By the way - after 15 years as a technical writer and trainer, I no longer
tolerate petty people. Unfortunately, some companies continue to promote
incompetent individuals who are skilled in the art of gossip, back-stabbing
and the finer points of CYA. If you don't know what this acronym means,
think of the recent under garment thread and what it covers.

Where is Andrew Plato when you need him? He would be a great contributor to
this discussion. Eric, did you place Andrew on probation while I was off
