Technical Writer Cover Letter

Technical writers write technical tutorials and documentation for IT companies. This includes online tutorials, user guides, technical manuals, design specification and other online course material. Today, it is a booming profession and companies are in more and more need of such professionals.

A good knowledge about content is required for such kind of work. Technical writers may not necessarily be from the IT background but they are guided by engineers and systems experts. Nevertheless, they should be good at research to produce appropriately relevant, information rich articles. A technical writer must possess good skills in information design, developing training material, illustration, website designing, and user interface. While working on instructional design, he should have a good judgment of background color, text font, size, reader friendly interface, easy access through links among other things.

Qualification-wise, a technical writer has to be a degree holder (in any field). Apart from this he should possess good English writing skills and computer operation.
