Hi there...
I'm currently a graduate student in the Professional and Technical
writing program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
I'm mainly looking for employment in the Pittsburgh area for the spring
semester. I'm also looking for employment after graduation in May.
I'm experienced in publishing on the Macintosh as well as on Unix (troff)
and IBM (BookMaster, DCF) systems. My primary interest is in creating
documentation for computer systems that will work well in online
and paper formats.

My resume follows.

Ed Costello

PS: I am currently interning with IBM in Poughkeepsie, NY.
I can be reached at home at (914) 297-9347 until January 4 when
I return to Pittsburgh.
