TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
> They are also sometimes written to satisfy a legal requirement. When a company has a contractor who is not a US citizen (H1B visa status, for example) and wants to offer that person a permanent position, they have to post a job opening and prove that there are no other qualified candidates. So they write tortuously detailed requirements into the job description.
> You can usually assume that such postings are published for legal reasons and not because anyone is foolish enough to think someone is going to walk in off the street with all the listed qualifications.
Unions do this too, even the musicians' union. I've seen this happen
frequently, particularly when I worked as a musician at Disney World:
audition notices would be posted for a gig that every insider already knew
had been filled. And poor schlubs would fly in from across the country to
audition for jobs they had no chance of winning. A lovely practice.
