Subject:Sr. Tech Writer opening: OSI, Folsom, CA From:Mark Dempsey <mxd2 -at- OSI -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 30 Apr 1998 08:46:46 -0700
My company has an opening for a Sr. Tech Writer to help their marketing
writers. OSI is headquartered in Folsom, CA, but has offices
worldwide. We make network management software that will manage
anything, but is mostly used in Telecommunications (AT&T, MCI, TelMex,
etc. are our customers). Your experience writing marketing materials,
and an understanding of telecommunications issues are what to emphasize
in your resume.
It's a great place to work--at least to me. Unlike other places I've
worked they actually will spend the money on equipment (17" or 21"
monitors) and software (we use Framemaker, and other Adobe products
primarily) so you can do your job.
My favorite OSI event occurred when we had a mandatory fire drill. We
found beer and pizza waiting for us in the parking lot. These guys know
how to take care of their employees.
Although we have a website (http://www.osi.com), I recommend sending
*me* your resumes if you're interested. Not only do I get a spiff for
recommending employees hired, I've found resumes are sometimes lost in
the H.R. shuffle. Be my guest and send directly to H.R. if you like,
but you've been warned...
