Unfortunately, a lot of this is geography. There are huge opportunities
for experienced medical device tech writers in the DC Metro area. I
think the same is true for certain parts of the Midwest (I knew a guy
who moved to Minnesota for just that reason).

As for your tendency to ask probing questions: Bill Swallow's right
about that one. It's a tremendous asset in this industry, and you
wouldn't want to work for a company that didn't recognize that. When it
comes to regulatory compliance and market approval, employees who ask
probing questions are worth their weight in gold.
