CAVEAT 1 --

Having lived in Arkansas a few years back, I feel qualified to say that these companies will probably be offering what most of us would consider to be a substandard salary or hourly rate. All that notwithstanding, these might be good positions for someone wanting to get their feet wet in Technical Writing. Arkansas is not exactly overflowing with qualified writers, so these companies are probably willing to consider applications from almost ANY out-of-state applicant.

CAVEAT 2 --

I list these positions as a service to members of the TECHWR-L list. I have no interest or position with the listed companies. Please address all correspondence to the companies listed, and NOT to me.
