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.
> I disagree with Tom that ones hobbies are *never* related to tech writing... obviously, there is going to be a connection sometimes. But I wouldn't list any hobbies on a resume unless you knew it was related to the particular job (in fact, I probably wouldn't list it on the resume at all, but mention it in the cover letter instead).
I'd go even further, and simply have an answer ready in case the
question comes up. The way I figure it, resumes and cover letters are
for getting you through the door. They should concentrate on your
qualifications. By the time someone asks questions about what you are
like as a person, you're over the first couple of hurdles.
