let further comment based on that list
Deliberately asserting myself as an entry-level technical writer into
what was at the time the 2nd biggest software company behind MS, I
eventually found myself on the chairman's acquisition team (through a
progression of other roles). I then jumped ship to a start-up as the
sole technical writer. This was in the day before the 'internet
bubble' burst, when if you had early stock in eBay, Yahoo and AOL you'd
be retired now (I didn't). It was time when all-of-sudden everybody
realized they needed a website. One day the company's founder came by
my desk while I was working on an operations guide. He dropped an HTML
1.0 text on my desk and said 'you are now also our webmaster'. Three
rounds of funding later, I found myself for while as VP of Product
Development as evolved a cutting-edge and complex telephony trading
site.
