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.
There is a third scenario. In my case, my company
is very flexible and employee-oriented. If someone
needs to be gone or leave early for family or
other reasons, they can (with proper notification,
of course). If there is a family crisis, serious
illness, etc. the company will bend over backwards
to support the employee in any way possible.
Because my company is willing to do so much for
me, I am very happy to do put in the extra effort
when the need arises and work however many
overtime hours necessary to to get the job done.
It's a matter of mutual respect.
