In the US, the bogus housing bubble "created" so many new jobs in housing construction, mortgages and real estate that no government stimulus short of a WWII-sized mobilization could ever hope to re-employ all the workers whose jobs disappeared. It made the dotcom look tame by comparison, because it was nationwide and not localized in tech employment centers.

If your idea of a similar frenzy for techwriters means another period in which demand is so great that anyone who can string words together into a sentence can get hired with no experience, then yes, it will take another bogus tech bubble. As with the housing bubble, there was never enough of a self-sustaining market to support such a boom.

Nothing like that happening for techwriters, though.

Not sure what would create a hiring frenzy for
techwriters, other than another bogus tech
bubble, that is.
