It probably doesn't come as a surprise to you that I can't apply for this
job. I have no experience with single-sourcing, XML, and ISO. I do have HTML
and SGML experience, and I can meet the job description.
I found it unreasonable that a technical writer with 2 years and some
experience would be able to meet these requirements:
"Works with product teams and manages individual projects from beginning to
completion. Interviews and interfaces with engineers in a design and
Maintains and revises a large library of legacy manuals using advanced
Requires high standards of writing and quality and the ability to meet tight
deadlines under pressure."
And have these skills
"Participates in special team projects and ongoing documentation
Experience with single-sourcing and usability preferred
Experience with HTML, XML, or SGML preferred
Experience with ISO processes preferred"
