TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have a topic to discuss. 10 years ago when I decided to go into
technical communication as a career (I loved writing and knew that
supporting myself on creative writing would be tough). At the time, I
did a lot of research and remember reading about technical
writing/communication was a hot job area with a great potential for
growth through the next several decades. I still find this to be the
case. However, I was interested on what other people thought. Do you
all think that TW is in the top 100 great careers, do you all think TW
is still rapidly growing, etc. I just thought this would be an
intersting topic to get into.
