Hi TECHWR-Ls,

Help. I have my first job interveiw for an entry level techwriting position
in less than 7 days. The position is within the research and development
dept. of a medium sized international IT firm (job description below).
I am coming from a non-tecnical or writing background (I have a masters
degree in social sciences) but I have great interest in learning more about
computing. I am basically self-taught and I've gained lots of useful
information and tips from reading this list.

What pointers can you 'experienced' tech writers give to a beginner to help
"close the deal" on the possible first job?
All advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Stan Smith
