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 found a great resource site called http://www.aquent.com/. Under their
heading "Free Tools" they have several free pdf files that describes the
different positions in the web industry and the print industry as well as
what the average salary is for those positions based on experience,
education and skills.
The files are very helpful for descriptions of the positions and comparing
the salaries within the different skills/experience/education levels.
However, I find that the salary levels seem a little low, at least based on
what I see in the Silicon Valley area. This would however be expected if
these numbers are based on national averages.
Hope this helps.
