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.
My only problem with all the new spiffy job titles floating around out
there is that it means that when I decide it's time to job hunt, it means
that I have to search for multiple job titles that might match my skills.
The list of titles that match my skills is getting pretty long at this
point. And I'm sure I'm still missing a few possible matches! =P
