My bad! I accidentally hit enter before I got typed the correct Subject.

Forgive my multitasking fingers.

timing that lands someone that first tech writing job."

Is that not the case for any job out there? Finding the right job is part luck,
part timing, and a large amount of persistence.

Vincent, if you really are determined to find a technical writing position, you
will. I caution you to temper your initial salary expectations since you have
less of a portfolio than many already bearing the TW label.

Yes, you can find that foot-in-the-door job. No, there's no one right way to go
about it.

Best of everything!
