our documentation this way.

Um, John, here's my original post that we were discussing:

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.


Now's a great time to buy RoboHelp! You'll get SnagIt screen capture
software and a $200 onsite training voucher FREE when you buy RoboHelp
