Technical Writer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Technical Writer in Halifax:
"Negotiate for your pay."

Technical Writer in Montreal:
"Keep at it"
When I started, the Internet was not even born, so do not give up your dreams. If you want to, you can.
