Here at IBM, we are hiring Tech Writers like mad. There was a big layoff at a
company in a city to the north of us. All our recruiters descended on the area
like a flock of hungry vultures (okay, maybe it would sound nicer if they were
a bunch of shepherds guiding wayward flocks). My manager just told our
department today to send any family, friends, or favorite pets with technical
writing experience/skills to him for interviews.

If anyone is interested in a job, please email me off list and I'll give you
more information.
