>My point is that technical writers (or prospective technical writers)
look beyond the weak job market and realize they have a lot to offer
employers--who at this moment may not fully realize what they need.
And that includes more than just in technical services, there are lots
of opportunities for someone in just about any position or industry to
focus on procedures & process documentation. If the tech writing job
you're dreaming of is hard to come by, you can always pay the bills
doing something like technical support while you work on process &
procedure documents during down time, doing it to make your own job
easier while you also beef up your resume. That's what I did many a
year ago, and it is pretty impressive to potential employers to have
someone just a few months out of college who can present documents that
they have created from nothing.
