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.
Considering the lack of jobs for us as writers right now, I'm starting to look
seriously at taking a secretarial/admin assistant type position--if someone will
have me--just to have a job. I've done it before, I can do it again.
That admin you're snubbing might be me ;-)
