BTW...I respond to the "5 year" question seriously. Someone might say "I
want to progress into project management" or something similar, so that
maybe the interviewer knows that tech writing is just a stop until
something better can be found. I, OTOH, use it to explain that I'm doing
exactly what I want...I just want to do it better and better. John Posada

Me too, me too, me too.

OK, not "just" me too. I make it clear that not only am I doing exactly what I love, and that I'm always working to get better at it, but that if things work out well, I'll be doing it for them 5 years from now.

Or I could just tell them that in 5 years I want to make the world safe from lame and meaningless marketing slogans. :)
