-> And another thing about tech writer supply and demand...
-> YES! Put salary or rate into the ads. Not too long ago I
-> sent a resume to a company that had been trying to fill
-> a position for about one year. They could have written
-> the requirements while looking at my resume. We talked
-> briefly and they concluded that I was probably the
-> right candidate and also probably too expensive.
Yet another stake through the heart of the "certification" issue IMO.
Supply and demand will dictate the qualifications required of
candidates, nothing else.
