Iâm interviewing with a large manufacturer on Friday. I have little real data about salaries in the San Francisco bay area for tech writers currently. I used, filling in a questionnaire, to generate a salary range for that position with the experience/location/etc. you enter.

It says âaverageâ (50th percentile) is $100K. Iâm thinking with practical experience (I not only have experience writing these docs but I am the target audience of the docs Iâll be writingâelectronics repair), that adds value. Iâm thinking 20 percent above average is not out of line.

How do yâall think about salary when lining up an interview and possible offer?
