I agree that the industry is in a slump, but if you know how to write in C,
C++, and Java, you shouldn't have a tough time finding work. Here in the
Boise area, Micron and HP are begging for technical writers with programming
skills. And they're paying well for those skills. Check out the Monster and
Manpower Web sites for this area.

If you're still having trouble finding work, get certified in one of your
languages or cross the fence and contract out as a developer.

I feel you make your own luck when jobs are concerned, and that comes from
being positive and searching for opportunities that tie into your career

Be positive, dude. This is an excellent industry to be in now!
