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.
All job listings are in theory structured to convince those who would not be
qualified to do the job or be satisfied in it to not apply. But if your
only issue with a job posting is its likely compensation, it doesn't cost
anything but time to see if your qualifications can impress sufficiently to
convince the client or employer to revise the budget. Look at the person
who started this thread, who was offered $22/hr and has just signed a
contract for $50/hr (more than I thought was likely).
