After about a nine-month hiatus, I have decided to resubscribe to the
TECHWR-L list. Part of the reason is that I left the technical writing field
after I decided to take on a job as a statistician with the Pennsylvania
Department of Labor and Industry. I had been laid off from my technical
writing position at Nursery Supplies, a manufacturer of horticultural
containers in South Central PA on March 2002. After a three-month job
search, I landed a contract-to-hire position with Aerotek Engineering on the
site of Ingersoll-Rand writing service manuals for their road compaction
equipment. I decided to take on the state job largely out of fears about my
job security--the company was not doing all that great by the fall of 2002,
and it was laying off people all around me except the technical publications
department. I did not want to remain in the contract status for long, and
with business not doing too well, I was possibly looking at a long stint in
contract status.

After a few months in my new job, I volunteered for a number of projects
that involve technical writing, so that I can be able to keep up with the
technical writing skills that I gained over the past 5 years. I was really
excited about that, and for that reason, I decided to rejoin the list. My
job is mainly keeping employment and wage statistics for my assigned area of
PA, but,as I mentioned before, I also do technical writing. It's great to be
back on TECHWR-L.
