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.
There's a lot of truth to this, especially in markets that are heating
up after several years of employers being able to use "be happy you have
a job" to get away with low pay and poor working conditions. But pay is
not the only consideration. Over the years, I have passed on offers that
were higher than what I was making at the time, or taken pay cuts to
work for companies where I considered the working environment to be more
conducive to my being able to go home at night feeling good about my
job, and as the market continues to improve, I think we'll be seeing
people with the experience and skills that employers need becoming more
picky about which job postings they'll hit the "Apply" or "Reply" button
