The best technical writer I ever worked with is a woman at
Intergraph in Huntsville AL. We started within 2 weeks of each
other, but she had more experience (I had none) and we were both
paid accordingly. If I was still there she'd probably be my
manager. Her salary was higher for about six years, then I found
that one-in-a-million great new company to work for and slipped
ahead. Nice segue into the next post...

That's right on target. And not a bad wage for a state with no
income tax and relatively low cost of living. I've been in Tampa
for 5 years now and no longer work for a _name_ company, which
probably explains how--after working my tail off here for 4 years--
I cracked your upper limit, if all the bonuses come through. ;-)
Actually, The Technical Resource Connection is becoming very well
known in Object Technology circles, but is almost unknown locally.

Now I suppose people will start responding to my .sig . . .
We just hired someone and don't have an immediate need, but
please send resumes if you're really interested and capable
of working like mad on 3 or more projects of 4 or more documents,
all at the same time. (With little or no support/supervision.)
