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.
One place I know of asks only for 'organizational' references, not
personal references, that is, all of your past supervisors.
That can be hard to supply--a couple of my past bosses are not
in the same company or career any more, and a couple of others
One association I worked with moved, changed its phone number, *and* changed
its *name*! Lucky I found out (by accident & much later) & wonder if any
potential employers figured I'd made up the whole thing when they couldn't
get through or find a listing for it anywhere! Learned my lesson to confirm
those things before each job hunt.
