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 think as far as I'm concerned it would be all about philosophical
agreement with the way I felt things should be done within the organization
rather than job history. Why?? Because I'm the sort of "doesn't necessarily
play well with others" type who doesn't last long in some large
bureaucratic organizations but I'm not afraid to wander in and give it a
try anyway. In many cases, it's a philosophical disagreement that leads to
a checkered work history. You talk to people, it all seems like you're all
on the same page and you get in the shop and the next thing you know you're
the skunk at the garden party. The only honorable thing to do is fall on
your sword and move on. Kinda like Steve H. hiring Andrew <grin>
