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.
As a newbie, career-changing, wannabe technical writer, I was hoping there
might be some experienced writers in the software industry who would have some
advice for a doctoral-level educator with a certificate in technical writing
(UW) who is trying to get into the software industry.
I've tried the usual: answering job ads, postings at school, joining relevant
organizations, going to meetings, applying for internships, etc. Nothing so
far. I'm looking primarily in the Seattle area but would consider an internship
out of area.
TIA for the input.
