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've been reading the posts about telecommuting and want to conduct a
survey. Please send your responses to me at:
shirlchester -at- yahoo -dot- com
and I will summarize for the list if there is interest.
I want to find out about the techwriting telecommuting experiences of
others. Please tell me how it worked for you by responding to these
questions and adding anything of interest that I have omitted. If you
know of a telecommuting techwr job available now, please include that
1. When and where did you live and to where did you telecommute?
2. How did you get the telecommuting job?
3. Did you work off-site only, or both on- and off-site?
4. If you worked both on- and off-site, what were the relative
amounts of time and what were the circumstances for each?
5. Were you contract or captive?
6. What was your income and how did it compare with on-site income at
that time and place?
7. How did you obtain the job?
8. What did I forget to ask? Please add your comments.
Thanks, and happy holidays!
