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.
More than once on this list I have heard people ask about how to in the door
as a tech writer. It usually sounds like they have had a tough time. I was
wondering how difficult is it for an entry level TW to get a job at the
companies represented on this list. I know around here (Santa Barbara, CA)
the seems to be far more jobs than applicants.
UCSB offers a tech writing minor and I have seen companies offer $40,000
plus to grads right out of this program.
