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.
Something that I am becoming more aware of each day is how dated my
jargon sounds. I use cool and stuff too often, but not in tech
manuals. Sometimes it is brought to my attention, and I have to admit,
I talk like someone who is searching for the good old days (the 60's).
Back to the links question. I have found that Indeed.com is a good way
to keep up with job postings. I have two search agents that return
results each day. Can't say that I've needed them, though. I know that
one student I recommended this site to was very successful, and moved
to a new job in a week.
