I gave a talk on technical writing at a Career Day at a local high school
earlier this year. I put my handouts up on the Santa Barbara STC chapter web
site. They are at http://stc.org/region8/snb/jobs/becoming.htm if anyone
wants to use them. They may need updating, as most of the data is from 1996.
