Shelly La Rock wrote to inquire about the purported short lifespan of
tech. writers in the industry. There are several possible reasons for
this, but the one that I heard from a personnel manager was that 2-3
years gets you enough experience to find a higher-paying job
elsewhere, perhaps with a startup company or one that suddenly
realizes that it needs good writers. Hope she was right!
