Technical writers create and maintain technical documents such as manuals, procedures and policies, they may also write articles for books and magazines. Typically, technical writers either concentrate on one discipline area of expertise (for example software) or specialise in a particular style of technical writing (such as procedures). Consequently, qualifications and training in either a specific discipline area or in writing and communications based disciplines prepare graduates for this type of work. Most employment opportunities exist in the industrial, scientific and IT industries though publishing companies, training and media organisations often also require the skills of technical writers.
