Has anyone ever done an 8-9 week consulting job? I have an employee on
maternity leave and need for someone to be working on her project while
she is gone. I'm not trying to replace her - just make sure her manuals
are done on time. I'm the first tech docs manager at this company in a
long time and I'll be the first to get the manuals out at the same time
as the software in 7 years. So you can understand the pressure from
management to keep on schedule.
Please respond only to me, not the list. Thanks for your input!
