What is the demand like for TWs in the embedded systems market? The article
in the following link indicates that there is a greater demand for embedded
system engineers than engineers for PC based products. Does this indicate an
equally high demand for writers in this market?
In my experience, documentation for the software and hardware used to
develop embedded systems is technical, complex, and written for an audience
of engineers specializing in embedded systems. Is this the case for all
documentation in the embedded systems market?
If the demand is there, then embedded systems should be a lucrative market
for TWs with the knowledge needed to understand the intended audience,
