After 20 years as a contract technical communicator, I have developed some special qualities:
Works well with programmers. I enjoy working with subject matter experts to get the information I need and to make their jobs easier.
Low maintenance. I am self-directed and self-disciplined. You don't need to wonder if I am getting the job done.
High integrity. Your secrets are safe with me and your goals and deadlines are mine, as long as you also maintain high standards of integrity.
Creative. I have extensive experience creating the initial documentation for new products.
Passion for detail. I track down every user task, consider every function, double-check every page and topic.
Sense of humor. Trust me on this one. Or decide for yourself when we work together.
