Well, gang, here's your chance:

What would ya tell a new agency recruiter regarding how-to-find experienced
techwriters?

Assume they'd never recruited a techwriter in their whole careers, and
don't know where to start.

Assume furthermore, that they need writers for less-than-popular
assignments, say; on-site doing documentation for the South Mobbefrenian
Ground Self Defence Forces' SAP installation on soviet-made mainframes
(It's winter now in South Mobbefrenia, about -40F, and the summers get up
to +120F).

Beyond surfing TECHWR-L archives, and scamming on contacts from all their
other branch offices worldwide, what should they do to dig up qualified
writers?

What tips can you offer this new recruiter to help him/her find out about a
writer's qualifications?

Is there a book(s) she/he should look at?

Websites with crib-notes?

STC Employment Committee managers? (John Posada, f'rinstance)

I, for one, am pretty hard on recruiters from time-to-time: here's a
cluefull recruiter who's willing to own up to knowing what she doesn't know
-- what would ya say?
