Technical Writer Resume

When we buy a new cell phone, electronic device, etc., we get a user manual along with it. Not only this but also the product specifications, descriptions, proposal writing, etc., is not just drafted without any efforts. The person responsible for drafting these write ups is known as a Technical Writer. A Technical Writer is someone who has exceptionally good writing skills with thorough command over written communication (any specific language as required by the client). He understands the specifications and technicalities of the product, and presents the same to the people from non-technical background or who do not have any idea of the same, in simple jargon free language. They do mention specifications and make use of certain unavoidable jargons but frame the content in a way that it is easily understood by the reader. This comprises of writing product descriptions for products that we see on the hind side of the packet, reviews, manuals, etc. Even the business proposals are written by experts who can be termed as Technical Writers because proposal writing involves immense expertise and efforts. Not any layman can write a business proposal. The technical writer resume given below will elaborate on the same.
