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 gotten to the point in my career as a contract technical writer that I
cannot list all of my experience on a two page resume. I have had a lot of
short term contracts where the experience and exposure I gained are too
valuable to leave out.
But my early years as a technical writer are important to document also,
showing increased responsibility for content, style, and distribution.
? - How do the veteran contractors condense their resume without shutting
themselves out of a position because that key piece of experience was
removed from their resume (besides tailoring each resume to a job)?
Thanks in advance.
