You have probably realized – probably before I ever did – that this Technical Writer career seems to let me down every 6 months.
That is, even with permanent positions, the company I work for decides to down-size or redirect their finances after I’ve assimilated with the development team and the work I need to do, after about 6 to 7 months.
I usually have a job again within 1 to 3 months. I always hope it will only be a month. But I never know. I’ve done this a lot over the last 10 years. So, this time I’m not panicked or freaking out. I’ve had a lot of practice is what I tell people.
Oh, I will freak out, eventually, if nothing comes my way sooner rather than later.
