This comes from an agency I've worked with. This agency is a general
high-tech placement agency (body shop) with no particular
expertise in tech writers--as a matter of fact, I was the
first tech writer placed by this (experienced) agent, although
far from the first for the agency. The agency itself isn't
particularly large or well-known, FWIW.

No particular point here...just thought it was interesting information.

jobs and for many others as well)
