Obviously the people advertising the job opening are not among the current members of the tech-writing team.

Or if they are, one had best look elsewhere for work.

Wait, wait, maybe they are underhandedly advertising for comedians, but are not allowed to come right out and say so.

I admit the use of the word "technical" in the "not to include" line is a
bit confusing, but maybe they're looking for someone with a background
relating to manufacturing.

For that, knowledge of how to work a torque wrench would outweigh IT or
medical experience.

So, this job was recently posted on LinkedIn:



Job Description: Employer's client is looking for 5 technical writers to
add
to an existing team of trained authors. Yes, the job title is Technical
Writer, but get this in the list of qualifications:



The desired candidate will have a specific technical writing skillset. NOT
to include IT, technical or medical writing experience.



Uh, yea - maybe the first technical term that the potential employer should
learn is "oxymoron."



Happy Early Friday,
