Complete Description:


On-site, long-term, part time: 20-24 hrs per week.


Local candidates preferred.


Create and update user guides and technical documentation, assist with program testing, and possibly provide some user training.


Research and analysis strengths will be critical, as much of the work involves discovery.  The program testing also requires tenacity and experimentation.



•             Windows 7

•             Microsoft Word 2010 (the user guides are created in Word)

•             Adobe Acrobat (to create PDF copies of the user guides)

•             Paint Shop Pro for capturing and manipulating screen shots for the user guides (JPG and PNG files are used)

•             Visio


Additional requirements:

•             Very strong Word skills are required, as these manuals are large and strictly formatted, and they contain a variety of illustrations and many screen shots.

•             Very strong English language skills are required.  (Some of the reviewers have strong opinions about grammar.)

•             Experience with documentation is required.  (The Chicago Manual of Style is the primary style guide.)  Examples of previous work will be required to be considered for the position.
