Dear TechWLers,

I'm just starting out as a freelance contract writer, after 14 years
in the tech writing biz. And, oh, I'm just FULL of questions.

Here's one for those who have mixed permanent and contract work.

How do you describe your contract jobs on your resume? Do you
give equal weight to permanent and contract jobs? Do you handle
short and long contracts differently? What if you have lots of
one type and few of another?

Does anyone have a sample resume they would be willing to share?
Or the URL of a web resume?

Any other advice is welcome - I could use LOTS of help. And thanks
for all the info and tips I've already seen. What a resource!
