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.
Not applying for a position has pretty much the same result as being
excluded or low-balled. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. If a prospective
employer isn't smart enough to realize that a past salary is not necessarily
a predictor of what someone will or won't accept in the present, I probably
won't want to work there anyway.
