Hi Pat and whirlers,

I feel your pain, Pat. I am just at the beginning of a global job search
as my company has just laid me off. Writing content for a Web content
management vendor was a small part of the many tasks that I performed
while managing the work of one other technical writer. We've produced a
very nice Online Help system/Reference Guide using Frame/WebWorks. It's
so nice that I am going to enter it in STC-France competition just
before my severance runs out.

There might be demand for your skills and I think it would be wise to
know DreamWeaver, FrontPage, and if you know a bit about the Web Content
Management Systems that are out there that might help.

The trouble as I see it is that while there might be demand, there are
precious few companies that are in the position to hire.

Best regards,

Hal Gill
Technical Editor
Web500 A/S

Dear Techwhirlers:


I am interested in Web design and writing for the Web. Can any of you
forecast the upcoming demand for skills in these areas? Will there be a
demand for these skills? Tools I should know? A better field to try?
Programming? Testing? I've got to make changes, and I want to ensure my
future marketability. Any suggestions, words of encouragement, jokes,
prayers, etc. are appreciated.
