tech-writing job in Wichita, KS

Here's a job tip from a former student:

I've just accepted a new job in Kansas City, but I was hoping you could let the technical writing students know about the job I'm leaving. It's an entry level technical writer position in Wichita, KS at Pixius Communications, LLC, an Internet service provider that focuses mainly on rural areas. The tech writer would be responsible for documenting a number of software programs created at Pixius, as well as doing some software testing, and other special projects. The full job description and can be found by clicking the the link to the job posting below.

Interested candidates can apply online here: http://www.nationjob.com/job/PCLL23.

I've really enjoyed the time I've spent working at Pixius, and I've had a lot of great opportunities that I know I couldn't have gotten at a larger company.

Best,
Chris
