The proposal writer from my last contract recently interviewed for a job that required "strong organizational & advanced computer skills. Word, Excel, PageMaker, & Front-Page exp, & writing skills are a must. Previous exp w/RFP Response preparation, Webpage maint & training develpmnt pluses."
She had all the skills except PageMaker. The first thing the hiring manager told her was that there would be no personal phone calls, and that everyone worked 60 hour weeks. Oh, the salary? $21,000/year. I wonder if they found anybody.
