Tammy...the poster said she has 4-5 years of Framemaker skills, six years of
RoboHelp, and some experience using Dreamweaver. Therefore, she has the
writing tolls requirements being asked for...even in Denver. Are you saying
that knowing technology isn't gong to give her more bang for the buck than
more of the same writing tools?
The reason I picked the skill that I did was that she included that skill as
something her boss suggested. He suggested database, do it right. If she
had included other skills, I would have too.
