Lots of great ideas here. I fell into tech writing by being hired as a
proposal writer by a high tech company when they had a large department and
forward thinking management that was looking for writers they could train on
the technology. Moved from there to the tech pubs department several years

Great way to learn not only the company, but also the industry since you
answer so many questions from companies wanting to buy your product. It's
especially nice if you have sales and sales support staff and engineers
willing to answer questions and explain things to you. I learned a lot in a
hurry in that job.
