I would be very interested in hearing the answer to that question myself.
Entry level, but:
- must be a technically-adept writer
- should have excellent written and oral communication skills
- must be able to clearly describe complex technical procedures for UNIX
- have the ability to work independently to meet project goals/schedules
- have experience with FrameMaker, other desktop publishing systems,
- basic graphic design highly desired.
I wonder what an experienced Technical Writer does there?
