A friend of mine, who is currently a tech writer, is looking at not only
changing states but at changing careers. Because she cannot let her
wishes be known at work, she's asked me to post these questions for her.
1) Does anyone know of recruiting agencies in the Mid-Atlantic region of
the US? She's specifically interested in Maryland, North Carolina, and
2) Does anyone have any opinions and/or advice about changing careers
from technical writing to recruting? Essentially, this friend wants to
become either an HR person or a "headhunter."
