I'm taking a tech writing program in Vancouver, British
Columbia, and would appreciate information and /or opinions
you have about being a tech writer (e.g. type of work,
typical hours, working conditions, salary range, corporate
culture, and relevant personality/lifestyle issues). Also,
how good are the career possibilities in Canada?
