If you're confused, yes I oppose and no I'm not worried about being weeded

Ah, yes... The college grads entering the work force. About 50% of them have
no idea what they want to be doing with their professional lives. About 50%
of those who have a clue know it's not technical writing. About 50% of those
who know it's tech writing they want to be doing will actually target their
job search appropriately. About 10% of those who know how to hunt for a job
will get one they want.

And of course there's the 2 year review, or what I call "spawning season"...
You know, when many of the new writers get fed up with the drudgery of
writing information all day and begin looking for excitement in another line
of work...
