If you're a writer, the hardest part of the job is finding work. Let us help you find permanent positions, contracts, freelancing work, or anything else you need to make it as a professional writer.
Technical writers create manuals and documentation for software and technology. Because technical writers interview programmers and industry experts to gather data, good people skills are useful. (But meaning no offense to techie types, the level of interpersonal skills you'll need is lower than you would need as a journalist, because you'll be interviewing, well, programmers and technical experts.)
Technical writing is unglamorous but highly skilled work, and as a result, it pays very well. The average technical writer's salary is about $55,000 to $65,000 in the United States, with a range of $35,000 to $95,000 depending on experience and region.
