Peter -

One strategy I frequently use is to not put all the focus of my resume on
what I've written, but on what I've -managed- (i.e., project management,
team leadership, contractor management, etc.) and other things I've done for
a client/company (i.e., beneficial programs/strategies I've developed, etc.,
that went beyond the job description) and to list my writing in a separate
bibliography. The combination has gotten me into both project management
and department management positions, depending on where the market is at the

Good luck finding the right spin for your resume.

(By the way, I suspect that staying in Tech Writing has kept me
from much professional advancement, as I've never been able to
construct one of those glowing resumes that proudly shows how
much money I saved or made the company through my work. The
reference manuals seem to have little obvious bottom-line
impact. The abandoned projects and the belly-up companies
don't add much either. Anybody have a clue on how to spin those
things into lush and profitable words?)
