Hi Kathleen,

Without violating the list rules and actually posting the job description, I can only say: Yes, we know exactly what we need. There are many Whirlers who qualify admirably. I myself would have qualified years ago, before I ever worked in medical devices. I just need the appropriate place to find local tech writers looking for a new gig.

Happy Friday,

Dan

Dan, I know this is a bit beside the point, but is it possible that you really need a tech writer and a QA person? Or, to broaden your pool a little by looking at TWs who have programming experience. I know there are a fair number of people who've move from programming to TW, or who have done work with APIs and other aspects of programming. Perhaps such people could pick up some of the QA aspect.

You also might try to clarify what you really need. Do you want a QA person who can write basic english, or a real TW who has some knowledge of "xx". QA can be pretty involved, right? E.G., I could run programs to check that things are working like they're supposed to, but I couldn't write test scripts.

It sounds like there might be very few people who could fit your job description. I know I was recently told about a TW/BA post, but they wanted QA analyses and script writing in there too.Â

I admire anyone who can do all those things well, especially for short term contracts.Â

Kathleen
