TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Jason asks: "I had a phone call today for a possible job as a Tech writer.
They mentioned "Life cycle documentation" or "Life Cycle Planning".
What is this and where on the internet can I read about it?"
You won't seem ignorant if you ask them "in which regard?" Life cycle
documentation could mean "SDLC" documentation which is "System Development
Life Cycle" documentation. This is something a lot of IT departments are
getting very focused on because Sarbanes-Oxley requires it.
However, "Life Cycle documentation" is generic enough to apply to many
aspects, including quality efforts. It's a guess on your part what they are
asking about unless they are more specific.
>From the question, it sounds as if someone is acting as go-between
(recruiter?) who doesn't understand what they are being asked to staff. This
only means you have to be more specific in your questions.
