Hello all! I hope this post finds you well.
As you know, I am pursuing a degree in Technical Writing currently. One of the challenges I have found when it comes to explaining my degree is that there is not a very well defined definition for what a technical writer does. It’s not something like nursing where people immediately place you in a hospital caring for patients or a lawyer where everyone recalls images of Judge Judy and large paychecks (both very much stereotypes and not always the reality…..)
Anyway, so I have been trying to find an article that explained what a technical writer is and I think I finally have. This article was posted recently on Business Writing Info Blog and I really encourage you all to check it out. Whether you are working to become a technical writer or not, having an understanding of different careers can always be useful.
Are you looking to understand what technical writing is and how you can become more proficient?
Technical writing continues to be a highly coveted skill in the professional workplace. Demand is expected to grow at 10% from 2014 to 2024. This is faster than the average for all occupations.
In this article we will show you an average day for a technical writer, how to improve your skills when writing complex documents, and why the field is quickly changing.
