5 Common Career Paths For a Technical Writer

Business Analyst

Business analysts are employees who are responsible for interpreting business data and coming up with business solutions. They are well-versed in whatever business the company is in, and they have strong business acumen. They collect data related to the business and then interpret and analyze the data. Business analysts should be able to conduct different levels of analyses and must also be able to create a sound study. Once the analysis is done, they provide recommendations or strategic direction to decision-makers that will help the business become sustainable and grow.

Project Manager

Project managers oversee a specific project related to the organization's business. They manage the whole project from inception to evaluation. They initiate planning with involved departments, follow-through on the plans, ensure smooth execution of the plans, and evaluate the project for further improvements should these be needed. In line with this, project managers also ensure that the project is cost-efficient and well within the budget. They also manage the different work teams involved in the project and ensure that things are running smoothly on this aspect as well.

Consultant

Consultants are individuals who were tapped by a company or an organization to work on a specific activity, depending on their field of expertise. They act as guides for the organization in undertaking projects that are related to their field. Consultants would usually assist organizations in planning, often giving advice when the need arises. They would, at times, take the lead in activities that involve data gathering and interpretation of data gathering results so that they can provide solid recommendations on actions that the organization may undertake. They may also guide the organization in implementing any changes brought about by their consultancy and in evaluating the effectiveness of the changes.

Proposal Writer

Proposal Writers help clients win contracts, grants from the government, or even permission to perform a consulting service. They must ensure that all important information is included in the paperwork and documents.

Technical Business Analyst

As a technical business analyst, one oversees the technical business project and solution implementation. Technical business analysts work with the technical team members and stakeholders for the mapping, analysis, and documentation of business projects and processes. People in the business world consider them as market technicians, chartists, securities traders, or researchers. The job also involves the documentation of redesigned computer systems and applications. Skills in computer programming, leadership, communication, and management are necessary.

How do I get a job in technical writing?

To get a job in technical writing, you should get a bachelor's degree in a related field. Bachelor's degrees in communications, business, and computer science are common for technical writers, but the specific degree will depend heavily on the individual's career path.

For technical writers with very general knowledge, a greater focus on specific writing and communications skills is more practical. Any major that heavily emphasizes writing and research may be appropriate.

A degree that corresponds to this specialization may be necessary for technical writers who pursue careers in specific fields, like technology, science, or medicine.

In addition, there are many certifications that technical writers in various fields may obtain as proof of their specific competencies or expertise.

Knowledge of web development and a portfolio of published writing can also go a long way towards securing a position as a technical writer.
