Dear Wise Techwhirlers,

I have just received an offer from a software company to do contract
work which is expressed in a rate per page and a specification of
a 5-6 page expected production per day.

I have not worked for this company before. But expect to work
on-site one or two days a week and do a substantial part of the work
at home. I have seven months prior experience as a technical writer.

I am concerned that the time I spend learning the company's software,
communicating with developers, attending meetings, doing planning
tasks, etc. (even learning the company's preferred documentation
tools. However, possibly that is another matter.) will not be
compensated.

I would appreciate any guidance in how to politely respond to
this offer. What questions should I be asking? What have I forgot to
consider? Please respond off list.

Thanks for any assistance you can give.

Ellen Gorlow
