You think that's insulting? When we had a req open for another tech writer in January, we had people from our shipping department and the warehouse coming to us and asking us if they could apply for the job. As if Tech Writing was so easy, someone with shipping or warehouse experience could do it.

A typist is not a technical writer, and "taking edits from subject matter experts and dropping them into FrameMaker documents" is not technical writing. You want a stenographer with FrameMaker experience. You probably *need* a technical writer but don't know what a technical writer is and would be unwilling to pay for one anyway. Is it Structured FrameMaker? Unstructured? What version? What plugins? Do you need index entries? Cross-references? Do you even know what you are asking for? John Sgammato Principal Technical Writer and Curmudgeon etc, etc ***** This would be a perfect position for someone trying to break into tech writing as you will be mostly taking edits from subject matter experts and dropping them into FrameMaker documents. _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as gflato at nanometrics.com.
