Career in Technical Writing

Are you contemplating a career in technical writing? If so, you should know more about the types of jobs within the technical writing field and the types of skills you'll need to land solid technical writing jobs.

Careers in Technical Writing—Prospects
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, technical writers can generally earn much more than writers in other fields.

Careers in Technical Writing-Paths
Being a salaried technical writer is only half of the story. Many companies that frequently put out technical manuals will hire technical writers for full-time positions, but a large part of the technical writing done in today's market comes from freelancers. Once you know the basics of technical writing, and are technologically savvy enough to talk the lingo of an engineer or computer programmer, you can generally work for a wide variety of industries as a part-time contractor. Freelance technical writers have the luxury of setting their own hours and working from their own home offices.

Careers in Technical Writing—Preparation
Many of those who take up careers in technical writing earn degrees in English or the sciences. Many successful technical writers landed jobs after developing relationships from freelancing, while others took specific technical writing courses in college. Many of these types of courses are offered at the associate and bachelor's degree level.

Now that you know a little more about the profession, you'll hopefully be able to jumpstart your own career in technical writing.
