While we're on the subject of salaries, what would you folks consider
the "norm" for Technical Writers? Granted, I realize it varies depending
on area, experience, etc.
What kind of money can a college student with a lot of collegiate-level
writing work and TW consulting work expect to see with a Degree in
Technical Writing when they graduate? (Okay, Okay, Okay, the
generic "College student" is me :) )
I've been made a few offers and I honestly don't know what to conside
as being "good" and "bad."
