If you base what you know only by what you learn at your job, you know that
well...and that's only if you happen to learn it well and they do it the
right way. If all you did all day is document X, you might do X well...the
problem is that nobody else needs X

There are many writers who cannot get jobs because the telecom field sucks,
but they were the best writer at AT&T that anyone ever saw..but they cannot
transition to another field.

Anyone see the movie Other People's Money? If all you know is how to make
buggy whips, you might make the best darn buggy whip anyone has seen...until
there are no more buggies.
