Carla, is your friend in a position where a certain dollar figure is
required to live?

When you are talking 65K for technical writing, I am thinking mucho
experience in technical writing AND managing.

Unless you are in the Bay area where a small coffee costs $12, sixty-five
thousand dollars a year is a good chunk of change for a position many
uninformed people see as a glorified secretarial position.

If your friend requires a position that pays better then $65,000
($32.50/hour) than consulting, management, or unionized labor is where that
person should maybe look.

Keep the faith, there are plenty of good jobs out there!
