I currently reside in northern Virginia, near Washington DC, and I've had many good tech writing positions with pay sometimes a ways past the 100k mark. However, I've been out of work for 9 months and becoming discouraged. I do have a telecommuting TW position for which I've just had an initial interview,and with fingers crossed I might start next week.That said, my family and I want to move out west to the central Utah area, where we have family and friends (very few here). At the bottom…Continue
I have an interview coming up for a job I really want. I created a writing portfolio using academic, work, and freelance(extracurricular) samples to give to my interviewer on the job. My portfolio probably has 10 samples plus I will give her my contact info with a link to a web portfolio I created with the same writing samples and some websites with content I was responsible for writing(ex. FAQ for a website). So, is using a writing portfolio better than just using a few writing samples?
Hello Everyone,I have about 5 yrs experience as a tech writer/editor in the oil & gas industry. Up until last week, I had been unemployed for 8 mths after having been laid off.

I could eventually import hands in Composer but from there to move the fingers....…Continue

Are any tech writers using salesforce as their documentation system? Or find the existing salesforce docs to be useful, easy to find info, etc?For cloud/saas apps built on the force.com platform, this might make sense, but I don't find it the knowledge articles approach very friendly or useful. Would be interested to know if other tech writers find value in this - I know there's lots of good info in there, but don't find it easy to navigate or use.Also, we need to get a Word doc into Salesforce…Continue

Hi everyone. I will be graduating next spring (2014) with a BA in English. Upon graduation, I hope to pursue a career in technical writing but my university (located in Chicago) does not offer any technical writing courses. I am urgently searching for technical writing internships but the process has been rather disheartening. As biased as I may sound, I am a proficient writer and I do enjoy all the concrete aspects of writing. I understand technical writers are highly sought after in software,…Continue
