TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
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.
I'm a former journalist turned freelancer & tech writer; currently the
latter assignment consists of writing software user manuals for a small
documentation house in Connecticut, about an hour away from New York City.
The job's okay but the pay is not, so I'm thinking of contacting some of
the placement agencies in New York itself & seeing how I might fare there.
Does anyone have any agencies to recommend, or are they all going to be
about the same (or do they change in ownership/operation too quickly to
be consistently evaluated)?
