ATTENTION: freelance writers in the Atlanta area
I have been asked by one of our clients to locate a technical writer
interested in an immediate, two-week contract writing an end user manual
for their customized application.
We sell a software application that clients use to design their own sales
configuration software. We do not have the staff available to provide
customized doc for each client on what they build. This client has asked
us to find a writer who can do the user manual for them.
Requirements: Immediate availability. Two+ years software user
documentation experience. RoboHELP or system testing experience a plus.
Windows 95/NT, Word 7.0 environment. Resume and samples requested.
Contact me IMMEDIATELY (with availability and rates) for more details.
Client needs to start no later than Aug. 18. Working site is undetermined
at this point. Requires minimum of 1/2 day on client site in north
Georgia. Rest of the work could be either in our Atlanta office (software
and the programmer who designed system are here) or from home.
NOTE: This contract could lead to creating the online help for this client
at a later date or similar work in the future for other clients.
