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 was given a test (write a list of steps to do a simple task in a program) as part
of my second interview for the job I have now. I assume anyone who
interviewed took the test. I was delighted to take it -- this is my first tech
writing job, so I had no experience to prove I could write; with the test they were
able to see exactly what they were getting.
Of course, I may just be happy about the test in retrospect, because I got the
job and I love it. ;-)
