I've been a tech writer for over ten years. I just was laid off of a traditional in-house job and there aren't any tech writing jobs to be seen in my rural area. I see a few jobs posted here and there, but I am not sure how, or when to ask if the job that is being advertised could be done remotely.
I applied for an editor/proofreader position and stated in my email that I wanted to work remotely. Their said if I wasn't seriously considering moving to their location, they wouldn't consider my application.
How do other technical writers get telecommuting jobs? Have you used job banks like FlexJobs?
Thank you for your help!
