I am a Technical Writer with a relevant experience of 10 years and an xml author with 5 years of experience. After moving to Aus from India 3 years back, I feel lost and unable to work in the current tech infrastructure. My present and previous companies use Google Drive and Docs as the authoring toolkit. I feel as if my skills are going for a toss.
Really feel like I'm in wrong place but also, don't find many xml tech writing gigs around either. Has anybody else been in a similar situation?

Exhausted from all the linked lists I had to reverse this week.

So they recently upped the quota of linked lists we need to reverse this month to 56 (a 34% increase!) and I'm not sure my team can keep up the pace. We're working as fast as we can but pointing the nexts takes a lot of focus, and we're just worried the higher ups are sacrificing the quality of these linked lists for quantity.

What should I do???

Hello everyone,

I have been a Support Specialist for 8 years. I'm looking for my next role, but I don't know what that is, as the career paths at my company are non-existent and there isn't any growth opportunities. I am at a loss for what roles I should be looking for.

I'm techincal, in terms of data analytics, though I do not have any formal experience with R, Python, Tableau, so I don't know if I qualify for Data Analyst/Engineer. My weakness is definitely networking/Linux.

What is next?
