Which is why I moved into the field of requirements analyst. Although I still consider myself a technical writer, I start at the beginning of the process, helping users to define what they need. It is very refreshing to see a final product that not only works, but works like the user expected it to!

Ditto. That's exactly why I got into Software Design; not only does it fit into a more interesting part of the process (getting the job done right the first time), but, frankly, I like the fact that I get taken a lot more seriously, and spend less time justifying my existence to management than I did when I was a techwhirlie.

In fact, I got some great advice five years ago from a recruiter: Get "tech writer" off your resume ASAP.

Sad, but true. Your mileage may vary.
