Market Demand

As technology continues to become more and more a part of our lives, demand for technical writers is expected to continue to increase. Although there are many writers, employers especially in the publications and services fields find it difficult to find writers who are capable of handling technical material.

Education

A technical writing degree is not a prerequisite. Most technical writers took up a bachelor’s in communications, language arts, journalism, science and engineering courses. There is no certification or licensing required to become a technical writer. Generally, technical writers have good writing skills and have specialised knowledge on the job.
