This is intriguing! Has anyone tried this? Has it helped anyone land a job?
Do you send it with your resume up front, or do you wait to be asked, letting
them know that it is availavble? Do you send it to all prospective
employers, or only those where you might be involved in a help-authoring
And I asked about this too, with no response.
I'll repeat my question (well, phrased slightly differently this time):
What is the best AND cheapest Windows online help development program that I
can purchase to create one?
In response to Mike Christie's question: I don't think it's gonna be more than
an opportunity to say I can create Windows online help on my resume, and prove
it (because so far I haven't had exposure to it on the job). Or as a pony trick
during an interview ;-)
