will I take a low paying job? Absolutely - if it helps me develop new >skills and further my experience level.

I have nothing against someone who is a junior level writer taking a lower-paying job. We all did that at some time in our careers. What I do object to is a highly qualified tech writer settling for a low-paying job. Our skills are too valuable to give to the lowest bidder.

an interesting side note: Here is a job available in Seattle right now. It is for a person who is both a tech writer and a bookkeeper. I wonder how many people are really good at both... according to the job description, the bookkeeping appears to have nothing to do with the tech writing. (click on "JobOP")
