Subject:Question about Consulting From:Heather Miller <hlm -at- INDY -dot- NET> Date:Mon, 16 Nov 1998 16:57:40 -0500
I am considering leaving my current position for various reasons. I have
only been there 10 months, and due to changes within the company, the way
they have treated some coworkers, and a lack of documentation projects I
feel that now may be the time to make a move.
I am considering moving into a consulting company that is needing
technical writers. What are the advantages and disadvantages of working
in the consulting arena?
Thank you in advance for any information. I greatly appreciate it.
