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."
Negotiate for your pay. Do not be afraid to walk away from a low-ball offer. Actively sell what you have to offer, and if the prospective employer is hiring you to fulfil a requirement rather than what you bring to the table, walk away.

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.
