Technical Writer

Technical writers must be able to convert complex data into user-friendly text for print and electronic publications, such as technical journals, government proposals, websites, and podcasts. Knowledge in a variety of software programs is an added advantage for Technical writers as they can write text, create charts and graphs, and incorporate diagrams and photos into documents. They must also be skilled in editing, proofreading, and document publishing. Multimedia skills, such as blogging, Web design, and video production are also essential.
