Depends. What kind of companies, and who within those companies do you
want to contact? HR? The documentation mangager? Depending on who you talk
to, you're probably going to get a wide and inconsistent range of answers.

Fire away - I'm game. So are a lot of us, so I suggest you post The Nine
Questions right here. Those who aren't interested can ignore the post, and
for the rest of us, it might be a nice break from debating about drafts
BTW, sounds like you've found a pretty sweet opportunity, getting somebody
else to pay for retooling your career! Very resourceful - thanks for
sharing that concept with us. I'm not aware of a similar initiative in the
US, but for you Canadian types, that sounds like it's well worth
investigating. Good luck with it.
Vini, vidi, siggi.
