Businesses of all sizes are spending a good bit of time and energy digitizing their operations. And, while a business’s digital transformation may make systems more efficient and workers more productive, digital enterprises still require extensive documentation and the technical writers who create it.
The role and responsibilities of a Technical Writer within an enterprise is somewhat unique. Not only must individuals fulfilling the Technical Writer role have technical expertise, but they must also have the ability to communicate that technical expertise to individuals that don’t. It is not a common skill and generally requires special training, natural aptitude, pertinent experience, or a combination of the three.
Recruiting a Technical Writer with the right combination of experience, technical experience, and communication skills will require a comprehensive screening process.
