Speaking of writing tests, here's a laugh of the day.

Last Thursday, one of our managers was interviewing a
pretty-good candidate for a tech writing position
in Houston. After leaving the candidate alone for a
several minutes with the writing test, the manager looked
in on the candidate, and he had cut and run! No sign
of him or the test anywhere.

If you are ever asked to take a writing test during an
interview, do these things:

1. Refresh yourself the day before by reading a
writing/editing book like the _Handbook of Technical

2. Treat the test like your first assignment.
