I have found a lot of ads for technical writer, documentation specialist,
etc.,, that require working knowledge/experience in Rational (RUP, ClearCase,
SODA), Oracle (Various version), C++, Java, etc., (et al, programmers), which
I do not see as background a 'technical writer' would normally be expected to

To look at the 'requirements, experience' in the position experience, it
seems that they are looking for a 18-hour-day split 6-hours here, 6-hours there,
and another 6 hours if we can get

And all of this for $20.00 hour.

I have been to CareerBuilder, DICE, CareerJobs, Americas Job Bank, and
others and the same seems to be the norm.

And then there are the 'make $6000.00 to $10000 a month' jobs targeting
accountants, and all sorts of people.

I even had an insurance company say my resume was right up their alley.

About 5 companies wanted to 'fine tune my resume' so that I could get a job.
At $300-$1200 for the task.

Oh, well, let's keep truckin'
