Congratulations! I have a PowerPoint presentation I will send you if you need it that explains what a tech writer is--and what it is not. Or what "we" are not. Let me know if you want it and I will dig it up.
Best wishes in your new position.

I just accepted a job offer for a technical writing position today. I will be the first technical writer at the company. It is a large company and they have only used outsourced technical writers before and are bringing me on as their first in-house technical writer. I have been the only technical writer before; but this is the first time I will be the first technical writer. I may be on here asking advice from time to time! Thought I would give you all a fair warning. :)
