A recent post for job opening included the following requirements.
Senior Technical Writer
Minimum 3 years experience technical writing preferably in an
Oracle-based development environment.
Is something happening to the Technical Writing job market in which a
minimum of 3 years experience constitutes SENIOR level? The STC requires
5 years continous membership before senior memeber status is granted.
